When I was a teenager, I helped out at my Grandma’s church a lot. She was in charge of the preschool classes and she was always making homemade playdough and salt dough to make crafts with. I always loved helping her make both and loved seeing the handprint crafts that the kids completed.
Nowadays, people are way more creative with the salt dough handprint crafts and I just can’t get over how amazing they are! Not to mention, these are amazing keepsakes!
