Make salt dough Christmas decorations
Make their own decorations using salt dough, in any shape they like!
One of the most exciting parts of getting ready for Christmas is decorating the tree! Though you can purchase special Christmas tree decorations, there are none better than the ones we make ourselves. In this Christmas STEM activity, kids can make their own decorations using salt dough, in any shape they like! They can even paint them and unlike normal cookies they will last a very long time. Baking is a great way for kids to learn about science and maths in a fun and rewarding way, so get your aprons on!
Download the STEM activity sheet below or watch our video for step-by-step instructions. If you’re up for an extra activity, help our ornament find its way back to the Christmas tree in our maze.
And please do share your learning highlights and final creations with us on social media @IETeducation #SantaLovesSTEM or send them via email to IETEducation@theiet.org to be featured in our online gallery.
