How to Make this Keepsake

Mix the recipe for salt dough and form into a soft ball.

Using a rolling pin, roll dough out to about 1/2 in thickness.

Use a tree cookie cutter (or free hand it with a knife!)

Cut out the amount you need, recipe should make at least 5 trees depending on cutter size.

Use something round to poke a hole at the top, this will be used to string your ornament.

Have each family member press down gently on the tree to imprint their fingerprint.

When adding fingerprints, try to imagine that they are ornaments on the tree and place them scattered all over. (refer to photo)

Place trees on parchment paper and microwave for 15 seconds. Repeat for 15 seconds more at a time until dough hardens.

Allow to cool completely before painting.

Choose a color to paint the tree, let dry.

To paint the fingerprints, brush paint over the finger and press down lightly over the spot that each family member had pressed before it was cooked.
