It’s true that I probably overestimate the value of salt dough and it’s imporatnce to the craft world. But these are pretty fun for the kids to make and give as a gift for Mother’s Day. Fingerprint gifts usually make hearts of moms and grandmothers melt. Because the kids made these with me they are big and bright, but a smaller pendant would be fun too.
Salt Dough recipe: 2 cups flour, one cup of salt, 1 cup of water. Knead well.
Create your small pendant shapes with a cookie cutter or a lid to a container that’s a good shape for your pendant. I had kids create a fingerprint indention before baking and then had them reapply the fingerprint after I put my first layer of paint. You should bake the charm pin with the pendant so that the hold doesn’t change during the baking process.
wearing a fingerprint and holding his hand at the same time = priceless.
