Mother’s Day Crafts For Kids – Salt Dough Hangings

mothers day craft

What Mum wouldn’t love some handprint memories of her kids so in this Mother’s Day Crafts for Kids we’re making homemade salt dough hangings. Before you run out to the craft store and buy an expensive kit, make this homemade salt dough and turn it into wall hangings.

When I made them I found that a smaller hand was a lot more effective as it shows up more on an adult hand but although Isaac’s didn’t turn out as well, I still love it and am hanging them up! Promo Code

Taking Mom out to eat this Mother’s Day? is awesome! The Best Restaurants can be found on .

  1. […] Handprints have the ability to freeze time for a mom.  They allow us to look back and remember that time when our child’s hands were tiny and so delicate. Why not create a lasting memory for a special mom this year by making Salt Dough Hangings from MummyDeals. […]
