Footprint Path

Looking for something fun to do with your little ones that will last a lifetime?

We have absolutely fallen in love with this gorgeous idea from the Imagination Tree…

 All you need are these few ingredients and some tiny feet!

Salt dough recipe

1 cup salt

1 cup plain flour

½ cup of warm water

Method

  • Mix ingredients together into a bowl and knead it until smooth. Ensure the dough’s consistency is stretchy- If it’s too sticky, add a bit more flour. If it’s too crumbly, add some water (It might take some trial and error to get it right!)
  • Next, divide the dough into equal parts (depending on how many foot prints you are making). Use a shallow bowl big enough to fit the foot comfortably.
  • Peel back the edges slowly and remove the dough, flipping it over onto another plate.
  • The underside should be a perfectly smooth canvas.
  • Once you have created the footprint,  place the dough on a baking paper lined tray and slide into the oven for 3 hours at 100 c.

*Ensure you do not increase the heat, if the prints are baked on a higher heat you may find the dough rises and “cooks”. The thinner the dough and the lower the temperature, the better these will turn out!

*If you plan to do something other than a footprint path, such as a wall hanging, ensure you create any necessary holes in the back prior to placing in the oven!

*Repeat this process each year and watch your beautiful footprint path grow!
