Friday Activity: Child's Lasting Hand Print

Each Friday we'll bring you a fun activity to do with your kids!

This week's activity is...

Child's Lasting Hand Print


Mix equal parts Flour and Salt (example: 1 Cup flour and 1 cup salt) Add enough water to get a firm clay-like mixture. Take out about 1/2 cup of dough and squish into a circular shape on a lightly greased cookie sheet. It must be big enough for child's hand (or foot) to fit onto with fingers (toes) out spread. Push child's hand or foot firmly into dough. Repeat the whole procedure for remaining children. Let dough dry for several weeks or put in oven at 225 degrees for 2-4 hours depending on thickness of dough. You will cherish these prints for the rest of your life!
