Happy Memorial Day! We’re officially kicking off summer, beaches, and all things seashore with this craft, care of High Five magazine. The resulting hand- or footprints would make a beautiful hostess gift if you’re visiting friends or relatives by the ocean this year. Happy summer!
To start, roll air-dry clay flat with a rolling pin. The instructions suggested placing a bowl upside down on top of the clay to cut it into a perfect circle, but I didn’t have a bowl the right size. We decided we liked the rather imperfect result of ours anyway.
Have your child step into the clay hard enough to leave a foot imprint (or, alternatively, press in a hand).
Decorate around the print with pretty sea-inspired bits, like seashells, or ocean-hued jewels and beads.
The seashells were a huge hit, and Travis loved sorting through them and selecting his favorites.
Let the clay dry completely before placing the stepping stone on the path to the ocean or beach!
