You can make this craft with your kids, or on your own, because salt dough is always a lot of fun, no matter our age. Let’s add a little fun to the fridge with colorful drop magnets.

You will just need a little amount of dough for this craft. Put in a bowl a cup of flour, half cup of salt and half cup of water, mix until you get a smooth dough.

Make little balls with the dough, one for each drop.

Pinch one side of the ball between your two fingers to make a drop shape.

Place the drop on a dish that is oven safe and slightly flattened the dough with your fingers. Finish to define the outline with a spatula or a knife if necessary.

Put them in the over at the lowest temperature for about one hour. I like to use a glass dish because the dough doesn’t stick on it once baked. You can also let them air dry, it will take a few days.

Once the drops are completely cooled you can paint them with acrylic paint. You can also add a coat of varnish for a shine finish.

Use your glue gun to fix the magnet on the back of the drop. Let the glue dries and done!
