Salt Dough Ornament Keepsake

We did a bit of a different salt dough ornament. I took a bowl and cut a circle to make a keepsake ornament instead of a cookie cutter type. The plan was to have the kids' hand prints in the circle. E (13 months) would make a lovely hand print and then dig deep enough to put holes in it. After 8-10 tries, I went to the back up plan. I think it turned out well.

My only regret is that I didn't do this keepsake sooner.

We are also planning on making some salt dough ornaments this month but I was wondering what kind of paint did you use?

Love this idea-I am definitely going to try this this year as Christmas gifts for the parents or preschoolers at church. I'm always trying to come up with something the kids can help with-this is perfect!
