Playgroup: Homemade Handprint/ Footprint Ornaments

For those of you who could not make it to playgroup last Friday, or didn't have their children with them, the recipe for the handprint/footprint ornaments are below:

4 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 1/2 cups water

Mix all the ingredients together. Knead dough for 10-15 minutes. Roll dough to 1/3 inch thickness. Use cookie cutters or bowl to cut into circle or desired shape. Press hand or foot in the dough. Use a straw to punch out two circles (for stringing ribbon or string through for hanging after it is baked). Use a toothpick to write your child's name, age, date, etc. Paint. Bake at 350ยบ for 20-25 min. Spray with clear polyurethane for shine after it is baked.

*dough is inedible, just due to the salty taste*
