  • Handprint plaque. I like this because its usuing ingredients from your home.
    2 cups flour,1/2 cup salt, 3/4 cup hot water, 1 tablespoon veg oil, 1 pie tin, pencil, ribbon, and decorative materials like, glitter or paint, or markers.

    Mix salt and water in bowl....allow salt to dissolve almost completely. add oil and flour and mix well. knead the dough until smooth.
    press the dough into pie tin. Have child press hand into dough....deep but not to the bottom. write childs name in remaining space with pencil. make a hole at the top so the ribbon can be strung through. bake handprint at 350 degrees four about an hour. watch carefully to make sure it doesnt over brown. let cool then decorate.

  • finger painting with pudding................stringing large wooden beads................gluing cheerios to construction paper.............fruit/veggie painting (cut various fruits & veggies in half, dip in paint and use to stamp paper)..................leaf rubbings (leaves between 2 pieces of paper, use the broad side of a crayon to rub it and see the imprint)....................sand art (recycled baby food jars work great- can also used dried beans of different colors, just glue the top on when done so LO doesn't open it and make a mess)......................
