What you need:
*Stir together 2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, 1-1/2 cups cold water (maybe a bit less), 2 Tbsp oil. Stir until a soft dough forms.
Preheat oven to 300 F
Have kids help roll the dough – a great sensory activity.
Cut dough with heart-shaped cookie cutters. Poke holes large enough to thread a ribbon through them. Bake at 300 F for an hour.
When cooled, paint with red, pink, white and purple paint—any way your child likes.
Let dry. Thread a ribbon through the hole, and you have a handmade Valentine's necklace!
