Homemade Christmas Gift Idea!!


This is a great way to have a keepsake of your baby ! Make this clay and take an impression of your babies handprint and footprint. How cool is that? It is also pretty easy. I made on of these on my sons first birthday !

Here is the clay recipe:

1 cup baking soda

1/2 cup cornstarch

1 tablespoon salt

3/4 cup water

In a medium sized saucepan ,mix all of the ingredients and heat on high until it comes to a boil. Turn the heat down to low and continue mixing until it becomes thick and creamy and is hard to stir. Remove from heat. Knead with your hands when cool. Flatten out the clay with a rolling pin and place your babies hand or foot firmly into the clay to make an imprint. Use a toothpick or pencil to write their name and dates ,like birthdate and date of imprint. You can even go as far as decorating this with some pretty glass stones or little toys etc etc. Let this harden for a few days! When you roll out the clay you can even use cookie cutters.
