Child's Dough Hand Prints

Ok, so while I was researching some things for Lance and I to do together... I came across this recipe to make your child's handprints in dough.

Materials needed:
2 C Flour
1 C Salt
1 C Water
Food Coloring
Matching Ribbon
Sharpie or paint pen
Rolling pin
Wax paper
Butter knife

Preheat oven to 200. Add food coloring to water. Then add in flour and salt. Mix together until all smooth. Dough should be stiff. Roll into a ball and them place on wax paper. Roll out to about 1/2 inch thickness. Dump the wax paper upside down on a cookie sheet. Trim up edges or cut into a shape (ie. heart, circle, square) with butter knife. Place child's hand in the middle and press down. Careful not to press down too hard because you don't want to go all the way down to the bottom. Cut two holes in the top of the dough (to string the ribbon through). Place in oven and bake for 2 1/2 hours. Careful not to over bake. Remove from oven and let cool. Once cooled off you may write your child's name and date above or under the handprint and string the ribbon through the holes so you can hang.

**When we did this I had to dust flour over the top of it so Lance didn't get dough all over his hands.

Will post picture when it is done baking!

Have Fun!
