Thumbprint Heart Magnets

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)

I want to make these for Mother's Day. What type of paint did you use? I am doing this with preschoolers. Thanks so much!

We used regular easel paint. I think it is crayola poster paint.

I found this post by chance from another post. I love this idea. I am going to share this with an article I am writing for Everything Mom. I will not copy any of your post, but I would like to use an image and link back. This way others can come and see how to make these for themselves. They are fantastic!
