This craft goes along with day eleven of The Living Christ: An Easter Countdown.
I forgot to post this yesterday! So sorry. We just made simple salt dough sheep to hang as ornaments on our Easter tree.
Salt Dough Recipe
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1/2 - 3/4 cup water
Mix flour and salt in a bowl. Slowly add water until dough is formed. You do not want it to be sticky!. Knead dough several times. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out with cookies cutters or or trace around an image (like we did). Let dry over night or bake at 200 for several hours turning over once to make sure it is completely dry. Dry salt dough can also be painted but we left ours a natural color.

For the next several days I will be posting about the World Congress of Families. This year it is being held in Sydney, Australia. Remember how we helped to raise funds for Angela to attend? She is sending daily reports of the presentations, interviews she is able to have, and more. I am excited to share with you what she is experiencing. There are so many around the world - politicians, religious leaders, community organizers, trained professionals, and others - who are dedicated to defending the family. I will try to post each day's events in order so you are not reading them backwards as you scroll down. I have broken up Angela's summaries into several posts so it isn't overwhelming to see a HUGE post. Remember, if you have any questions you would like her to ask when she gives her interviews, leave them in the comments and I will pass them along to her.
