Remember our Salt Dough recipe? Well Maisy is still obsessed. Salt Dough has become 'our thing'. Along with those tiny Disney princess dolls, Salt Dough is her favorite game. So, most days after we drop Afton at school and go to the gym, we end up just coming home and hanging around. Then my sweet Maisy will look up at me and say "Don't you want to play with me?" How can I say no?!
So more often than not, out comes the Salt Dough!

Since we are headed towards Valentines, I decided to break out the heart cookie cutters and give our Salt Dough game a festive twist. Maisy liked comparing the heart sizes. There is a 'daddy-size, a mommy-size, and a baby-size' in our set.

After setting the dough hearts out to dry, Afton returned home from school and decided she wanted to use them for her class Valentines. So a few days later the girls painted them.

And a few days after that, she wrote on her Valentines. We used the phrases from those candy conversation hearts to help with the messages. Then she signed her name on the back.

Salt Dough Valentines. A new twist on the whole 'make your own' Valentine movement. A fun candy-free option for those who live in a house where Salt Dough is just as popular as Disney Princesses :)

Do you make your own Valentines?
