Made By Little Hands- Quick and Easy Hand Keepsakes

During baby class today (one of Avery and my favorite parts of the week) we were all playing with play dough when one of my friends, Heather, told us about how she uses the play dough to make prints of her children’s hands. She said she would just make the impression and then set it in the sun to dry and it is much easier, quicker and CHEAPER than buying those pre-made kits. 
PLUS how great would this be for family members for Valentines day? You could find tons of colors and play dough is super inexpensive. 
Needless to say, I did Avery’s on the spot and will probably make a few more over the weekend for the grandparents for Valentines day.

    When I was making my potions years ago, I added cherry kool aid to the play dough for a fun scent! My girls loved it!
