Roll out the clay to an even, thin layer
Cut out a shape
Press your child's thumb into the middle of the shape, once each in alternating directions to make a heart shape
Make as many as you like
Use a skewer to poke a hole in the pendant before baking Bake according to package directions Let cool completely
If desired, paint the inside of the heart
We ended up with some hearts and some that look more like butterflies

Thread the yarn or string through the hole
