TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
If you make your own stampers, make ahead of time. Liquid Nails works well to adhere buttons. This is to be done by an adult only.
The Wilton 101-Piece Cookie Cutter Set
is a great set for kids. No sharp edges and cutters for all occasions. Letter and number cutters included as well. The only flaw I found was they don't easily fit back
into the container provided unless you place smaller hearts into the larger ones and do this for all the shapes in varied sizes.
Great recipe to write out to for your child to follow as you make the salt dough.
Helps to build fine motor skills.
