One of our ASDAN modules this term is to make something using a new and different material so we made some salt dough decorations. We transferred the skills we usually use when making and playing with play dough to squish and roll out the dough. Then we used our cutters to cut out some fun shapes before using a straw to make a hole for hanging it up. It was so much fun squeezing the dough!
Then we practised our waiting skills because they took A LONG TIME to harden. We checked on them throughout the week and then finally, they were ready to paint. Instead of brushes, we made choices between using pompoms and pegs or our hands and fingers to apply paint to our decorations. Everyone did a fab job and I think the decorations turned out great!
