Easy Handprint Christmas Ornament ~ Child to Cherish Clay

 I have played with pottery and clay in the past.  The last handprint ornament I made was our oldest’s when he was 2 {5 years ago}.  He loves that ornament and it still hangs in his room.  When I heard about Child to Cherish marshmallow clay, I couldn’t wait to get it in the mail and get started.  I also wanted to preserve Scooby’s paw print as well.  Now we have 3 Christmas ornaments that have such meaning to us.

It really doesn’t get easier than this, it’s a whole kit!!

Kids love rolling out the dough and being a part of playing with dough.  If they don’t flatten it enough to fit their hand, not a problem, it’s totally moldable and easy to redo.  The dough doesn’t dry out very quickly so there is a lot of open time.

Then once you’re done, you simply let it air dry.  And hang it on the tree!

My kind of craft!

Quick. Easy. Uncomplicated

We did Scooby’s paw print.  We had to put our furry family member down recently.  They offer to do a paw print of your pet at our vet office, but I figured I would go ahead and do myself.  It meant more to me {and it was much cheaper}.
