My kids are so ready for Halloween. We already agreed upon what Halloween costumes I will make for them this year. They look forward to Jack’o’Lanterns and we got a couple of Halloween lanterns from the dollar store. A Halloween craft felt like the most natural thing to do, though we’re more than 2 months away from Halloween. We made this handprint Halloween keepsake with air dry clay but you can also oven bake clay or make your own salt dough.

Step 1: Roll the clay out, about 1/2″ thick. Let your little one press her hand onto the clay.
Step 2: Use a craft stick to cut the shape of a pumpkin. Smooth the edges. Make a hole in the stem with a drinking straw.
Step 3: Let the clay dry for 24 hours.
Step 4: Use acrylic paint to turn the handprint into a Halloween design. It can be a ghost, Jack’o’Lantern, Frankenstein, candy corn. Paint the rest of the pumpkin orange and the stem brown.
Step 5: Thread a green ribbon through the hole in the stem.
