Salt Dough Keepsakes

I actually made these hand-prints with my children back in December and I finally sat down and painted them.  I was going to have my daughter paint her's but after I did my sons I just kept going because I absolutely love them! It will be a hand print I will keep forever!  


Recipe 

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
Bake for about an hour at 325*

Last Christmas we made fun ornaments and I let Selah have a ton of fun painting them.  We did make these hand-prints then too but we never finished them.  

You have so many possibilities to create something  neat with salt dough and the best part is it will not break your bank!  You can make a keepsake like these hand-print ones for Father's Day, Mother's Day, Birthday's, Christmas, or any other special event.

I do have some cracks... I have no solution to keep cracks away. SORRY

Love this! I made it with my class and after it was baked and cooled off, I painted it over with Modpodge and it seems to be holding pretty well in preventing cracks.
Modpodge... BRILLIANT idea! Thanks for the tip!

about how many do you think one batch would make?
It made enough for handprints and several christmas ornaments!
