1 cup flour
1 cup salt
Mix flour and salt. Add enough water to get a firm clay-like mixture.
Take out about 1/2 cup of dough and press it into a circular shape on a lightly greased cookie sheet. It should be large enough for a child's hand or foot to fit onto with the fingers or toes spread out. Push child's hand or foot firmly into dough.
Let dough dry for several weeks or put in oven at 225 degrees for 2 to 4 hours, depending on the thickness of the dough.
Note: Dough may be colored with food coloring, if desired - perhaps pale pink for a girl, pale blue for a boy.
