Thumbprint Heart Magnets -for the one you love
We recently made one of these for a grandparent's birthday. They were very easy and quick and lots of fun to make.
I started with a golf ball size of Sculpey oven bake clay. Use the bottom of a cup to flatten the ball. Help the child press one thumb into the clay and then rotated the clay and to make another print. Follow the directions for baking (about 15 min). I then glued on small magnets using craft glue (I have since used the hot glue gun which I think bonds stronger).
When it has cooled, it can be painted. After the child has painted it, I found that leaving the paint in the impression to dry, but wiping off excess paint around the rest of the circle creates a nice contrast.
We also made these nature print magnets, inspired by this blog, (sorry, link isn't working just type "sculpey" in search box when you get there)
