1 cup salt
1 1/2 cup hot (tap) water

Directions:
Directions:
Combine the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Gradually add the water. Knead with your hands until all ingredients are well blended.

If it's too sticky, add more flour. Too crumbly, add more water.

To make ornaments or hand prints:
Roll out dough until it is about an inch thick. Use cookie cutter for ornaments and "chubby little hands" for the hand prints. Put flour on hands before so they won't stick to the dough. If you want to be able to hang the ornaments, then poke a hole at the top of the dough before baking (a chop stick works well). You can write name and date in dough with toothpick.

Bake at 200 for about an hour on wax paper.
