I love this doll play/doll craft idea from Karen today!! I know quite a few of you have asked about how to make a turkey dinner for your dolls before, so here it is.
With Christmas just around the corner, many people where I live in Canada, cook Turkey for Christmas dinner, for today’s post I thought I would share with you how to bake your own re-useable Salt Dough Holiday Turkey for your dolls. Today’s model is Harmony Girls Ariana.
To make your own Salt Dough Holiday Turkey you will need:
- 2 cups of flour
- 1/2 cup of salt
- 3/4 cup warm tap water
- a bowl
- a spoon to stir
- an oven safe pan
- a piece of paper
- a pre-heated oven to 350 degrees (with an adult’s help)
Step 1– Mix the flour, salt and water in a bowl with a spoon until a large salt dough ball forms. Have an adult preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Step 2-Take some of the dough and roll it into a large egg shape
Step 3– Take some more dough and make two long tear shape “drumsticks”
Step 4– Make two eyebrow shaped “wings”
Step 5– Attach the “drumsticks” to the sides of your egg shape as shown in the photos above. Gently press them in place.
Step 6– Attach the “wings”, gently press them in place.
Step 7– gently pick up your “turkey” and place him on a baking sheet on top of a piece of paper. As shown above.
Step 8 – Have an adult help you put it in the oven, on the middle rack. Bake your turkey until it is slightly golden brown, I baked mine for 40 minutes. Each oven will be different.
Step 9 – Remove from the oven and let cool. When cool peel your “turkey” off the paper and place it on a large doll plate and set in the middle of your dolls Holiday table.
This recipe can be used to make lots of doll food! I also made some doll sized suns and doll size bread with the left overs. If you are not going to bake all the dough at once, place your dough in a ziploc bag and put it in the fridge until you are ready to work with it again. It will keep up to one week in your fridge.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post and have some time this holiday season to create items for your dolls!
Happy Holidays to all of you and I look forward to sharing more doll play ideas with you next week.
