Gather These Supplies

Break off a “hunk” of the clay and place it on the wax paper. Roll out the clay to about 1/2″ thick. If you find the clay you’ve rolled out isn’t big enough, add more.

Place the hand down into the clay and push. Help toddler age or small children with this by pushing each individual finger and then the base of the palm down.

Lay the clay ornaments out on the wax paper, then on top of the cookie sheet. Let dry overnight (this can take longer if you live in a humid area). DO NOT BAKE.

Once the handprints are fully dry, paint them with acrylic paint. Use any colors you like; let dry.
