Salt dough recipe - not for eating!

We made some salt dough decorations for the Christmas tree competition.
You must not eat this.

You will need:

A large bowl
A rolling pin
A baking tray
Some cutters
2 cups of plain flour
1 cup of table salt
1 cup of warm water

Put all the ingredients into the bowl.
Mix it with your hands.
Squeeze it all into a ball and make it smooth so there are no cracks.
Roll out the dough evenly so it is about 1cm thick.
Use the cutters to make your shapes.
Place the shapes on a tray and leave to dry in a warm place until they have gone hard. Or ask a grown-up to dry them in the oven for you.
You can paint your shapes when they are dry if you like.
