so i was thinking for my mom for mothers day...

I wanted to do hand prints in the clay but dont have the money to get eh clay stuff..so I was thinking of painting mine and my son's hand prints for my mother and then frame it. Cheesy...but sort of like, she's my mommy and I am a mommy type thing? Sound cute? Any other ideas? I like to be creative rather then purchasing something.

  • What about making some homemade playdough and then harden it with the handprint idea that you were already thinking? King Arthur Flour has a great recipe for this on their website. You can also use food coloring and scented oils in it if you like.

  • I just did a handprint for her. When I was little I did one but in my mother and fathers divorce my father hid all those little things from her...so I thought this would make her smile. I made it purple..its cooking now :) thanks ladies
