We started a few St. Patrick’s Day crafts this week including these Fingerprint Lucky Charms, they make the perfect gift or keepsake and are made using a super easy 2 ingredient recipe!
To make these Lucky Charms you can use a salt dough recipe like the one we used here for our Footprint Olaf Ornaments, but we opted for something a little different this time. Using only these two ingredients Corn Starch and White Glue we made a no cook, non toxic white clay.
Two Ingredient Fingerprint Lucky Charms Keepsake
First you’ll take 1 cup of white glue and 2 cups of corn starch and mix them together in a bowl. It will create a white moldable dough, you’ll then use a rolling pin and roll out your clay.
Once you’ve smoothed out the clay use a cookie cutter for the shape of your charm, or a cup works fine too. Next your little one can imprint their fingers for the four leaf clover design on the circle you’ve cut out. When you’re done making your imprints take a skewer or straw to make the hole for the string.
We let ours air dry over night, just make sure to flip them so both sides are dried. When they’re completely dried the kids can paint the clovers and add their name/date on the back!
