Hand Print Ornaments

Materials

Sculpey
straw
ribbon

 

Directions

"Every year I have had the kids make a gift for their parents (my kids make them for family as well). Usually something with handprints, footprints or something that they can look back on and remember. 

This year we used Sculpey clay and rolled it about 1/4 inch thick, cut out into BIG stars, poked a hole with a straw and put a handprint on each star. I dried them, spray painted them with glitter spray paint, and the kids will string a ribbon through the hole so their parents can use them as an ornament. It was cute and not too expensive."

Thank you to one of our visitors for sending in this idea.

Hints:

  1. Use one of the baked dough recipes if you don't have any Sculpey.
  2. Make your own shapes, rather than the star.

Wheel of Better Behavior for children
Experience the Thrill of Well Behaved Kids Overnight with this One-Of-A-Kind, Powerful New Parenting Tool

Better Behavior gives families discipline creative options without spanking. When your child misbehaves, spin the wheel and he or she is required to follow whatever consequence the arrow stops on. Your child participates in choosing the consequences, so he or she will have an investment in the process and be much more willing to give the Wheel a spin when the time comes.

Just having the Wheel in your home can change the atmosphere overnight. It's guaranteed! Conflict resolution becomes much easier to deal with. Families who use the Wheel report dramatic changes in their households. Homework gets done, clothes get picked up, arguing stops...in short, the Wheel produces great kids and a stress free environment! The mere presence of the Wheel will have a marked effect on your kids. Chances are, you'll seldom even have to spin it!
