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.
