Holiday Snowflake Fingerprint Ornaments

With the Thanksgiving holiday wrapping up, we are plummeting directly toward Christmas. As I’ve mentioned probably a thousand times a year, I love this time of year. But, man is it a busy time. It seems like there are a thousand things to do to keep traditions alive and prepare for the holiday and our impending travel. Each year I like to make sure, in addition to purchased presents, our families receive a special gift from our kiddos. Life with a newborn and four-year-old is still as busy as can be, so this year especially, I needed something super easy and time friendly. This project met both requirements and turned out pretty cute if you ask me. Here we go!

Directions
  1. Work and knead your clay to get it heated up and make it easy to manipulate and mold.  Roll it into a ball.
  2. Use your rolling pin to flatten the clay to about 1/4″ thick.
  3. Cut the clay with your cookie cutter. Be sure to get creative and remember you can choose other cookie cutters, too, or do a circle with a full hand print.
  4. Press your child’s fingerprint firmly in the center of the shape.
  5. Place all ornaments on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake at 275 degrees for 30 minutes.
  7. Tie ribbon through hole.
  8. Write name or details on ornament.

Cost:

With all of the materials on hand, this project cost me $0 and saved me a trip to the store for other materials. You can’t beat that! Without any of the usable materials on hand, the project would cost approximately $10.

Our families always love getting a special gift they can pull out year after year and remember a time with our children. I hope you all are enjoying the season and getting plenty of time with family and friends.
