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
- 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!
