Parenting Tips - DIY Baby Keepsake

Posted by

Valentines Day is coming

This week we thought we would share a great craft idea with you on our Wednesday Blog Post.

Are you looking for an original present to give to loved ones?  Maybe one that does not cost a fortune or feed the commercial side of Valentines Day.

We have the solution....as we are always on the lookout for new craft ideas to do with little ones, we came across this great article for a DIY Baby or Child Keepsake, (from Paging Fun Mums) in fact this idea is so good you could do one every year and see how they grow.  We also think this is much easier than using the traditional plaster of paris, especially if like me, yours starts to set before you have got their hand or foot print in it.

Please click on the picture to open the full instructions in a new page, this recipe is from Paging Fun Mums.

DIY Baby Keepsake - Using homemade clay

We would love to see pictures of ones you make, please share on our Facebook Page.

We hope you have fun making this and getting creative with the decoration.
