One of my new friends (starting to get to know people at Abby’s school) told me about this great craft. I had done the fall salt dough ornaments with her daughter, so she thought we’d enjoy this one too.
First, you’ll want to whip up yourself a batch of salt dough.
You’ll want to have the kids roll out the door and then press down firmly to create a hand print.
Cut around the hand print. You see it’s not an exact cut, but echoes the basic shape. Use a straw to poke a hole on the top so you can add the string to hang them. Bake these at 200 for 2-3 hours. Let cool.
Paint the entire hand white.
I used a pencil to outline where they should paint both the red and the pale pink face. Abby drew some of the guidelines herself. Then, they painted.
After completely dry, we added the black. Instead of paint, I used (or Abby used) a Sharpie to create the black details.
