Kids' Salt Dough Ornament Workshop


If you grew up like me with a Christmas tree covered in fried eggs, crawfish, pepperoni pizzas, a glittery alligator, a pig with an odd metallic sheen, two Ringo Starrs, unintentionally horrifying teddy bears that might have been bulldogs but you weren't really sure, and several Santa Clauses that all looked to be in a state of semi-homelessness then, yes, you made salt dough ornaments. Salt dough ornament time was a true joy of childhood and we're bringing it back at YaloRUN.

Drop your kid(s) off at YaloRUN from 9am - 12pm on Monday November 23 - Wednesday November 25 and we'll take care of the rest. The workshop will involve following a recipe and learning basic shaping skills in modelling material ( i.e. how to put smaller pieces together to make the larger piece you want...or, how not to make your ornament so fat that it explodes in my oven.) We'll bake and paint the ornaments and on the last day at pick-up time we'll have the ornaments on a little Christmas tree in the shop with some cookies and punch and 1970s Christmas records playing to make it truly festive.

No salt dough tree is complete without a hotdog. Happy hotdog christmas!
