I'm makin Stepping Stones with my DDs footprints. I'm going to make one every year on her birthday. What kind of special memories are you moms making? I'm always looking for more ideas. Ill post more pics in replies. And if you're interested in this idea here's how to make it (very simple)
1/2 cup salt
1/2 flour (all purpose)
1/4 water
Stir and form dough into a flat even layer.
Place baby's hand or footprint deep into the dough
(For ornament) take a pencil or straw and poke a hole at the top of the dough.
Bake at 200• degrees for 3 hours.

(This was a practice one since it was my first one but for my DDs birthday I'm going to make big ones to place outside to be used as actual stepping stones)

We tried doing that with our DD1 and it didn't work out so we just said screw it. We didn't even bother doing it with DD2!!

Yours turned out great though!
