What you need:
- food coloring
- paint brushes
What to do:
Make a batch of homemade clay: Mix 4 cups flour, 1 cup salt, and 1¾ cups warm water in a bowl. Knead the mixture for five to ten minutes.
Add food coloring to the clay if desired.
Press out the clay into a flat cookie shape, and invite your child to press his hand into it, leaving a print.
- Let it dry and decorate with paint. Give it to a grandparent, family friend, relative — or simply keep it for yourself.
