Handprint Santa

Mix equal quantity of all purpose flour (maida) and salt. Add water progressively and knead into a dough. The dough should not be sticky and should be roll-able into a ball.

Take a big lemon sized ball and roll it out, as you do for chapathi or pizza. Let your kid make a impression with hand, For smaller kids, help them by pressing each finger and the palm. Cut around the hand print leaving a small margin. Poke a hole at the top to insert string for hanging.
Bake the handprints in the oven at 100C for 3hrs. I used a OTG microwave, so I chose the convection mode and baked as mentioned ablove. Once cooled the hands are ready to be painted.

I was inspired by a pin I saw in pinterest, so I made these cute little Santa ornaments. We used acrylic paints to paint as shown and also added some red and white glitter glue for the cap and the beard once the paint was dry. One side is done and I couldn't wait to post this. Will write the name of kids and the year on the other side of these ornaments!

We also made some ornaments with cookie cutters. they are in the process of getting painted. Will post those soon.

Merry Xmas!
