We also made the traditional hand and foot print ornaments. I looked at a bunch of recipes for salt dough ornaments and tried a couple but one was too wet and another too dry so I decided to try out a cornstarch recipe instead. I loved it. It was super easy and great to work with. These were pretty much all made by my son and I. It shows in some places, he is two. It is really hard for me to let him have control of projects and take them on. A part of me (a big part) wants to swoop in and clean things up and perfect it but I am so glad I didn’t give in on those whims with him. It was so fulfilling to make these with him and he was so proud of them. It really brought about some great realizations about how special this time of year is and even more so with little ones around. I think this will be a new tradition for us!
