Make with kids thumb prints! Love this. Should be able to make easily with Salt Dough - 2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, cold water. Mix until has consistency of play dough. bake at 250 for 2 hours, then cool and paint.good recipe for thumbprint pendants.
DIY PROJECT:COFFEE CAN LANTERNS - Instead of setting them up with clamps and wood and stuff I have seen the same thing done where you just fill the can with water and freeze. Which means you then have a good sturdy surface to hammer the designs into.
