Can't Get Started Without:
~Paint in your choice of colours
The great thing about this recipe is that it uses only what you probably already have in your pantry. How convenient is that?! It is also so simple, that your little helpers can almost make it themselves. I know my little girls were ecstatic about getting to work with daddy to make something for mommy.
Step 1: Preheat oven to 200 F.
Step 2: Gather your little helper(s) and your 3 ingredients and add them together, starting with your flour.
And then your salt.
Step 3: Stir your ingredients with a wooden spoon until they start to stiffen.
At this point, after letting me sleep in (thank you honey!!) I was woken up to help take some photos while the girls made their footprints.
Step 6: Get your kiddos together and have them step those sweet little feet into the circles you've made. Make sure to help them put some good pressure down to get a good impression.
Step 8: Carefully place your formed, footprinted and carved circles onto a non-stick or greased cookie sheet.
Step 9: Place in the oven and let bake for 3 hours.
......Fast forward 3 hours......
Step 10: Remove baked stones from the oven and let cool.
And, you're done!!
