Beach Sand Hand
Summer trips to the beach or lake are always great places to make memories with your kids. This year take a memento of your time in the sand home with you in the form of a sand cast handprint from your little one.
Things you’ll need:
Plaster of Paris
Disposable container and spoon for mixing
Pie pan (optional)
Things to do:
1. If you don’t have access to a section of the beach where your handprint can sit undisturbed while it dries, fill your pie pan about half full with wet, but not sopping sand and pat down to create a flat surface.
2. Press your child’s hand into the sand firmly so that you get a nice deep impression of if.
3. Mix up your plaster according to the directions on the package and spoon it carefully into the impression of the hand, using the tip of the spoon to work it into the fingers.
4. Allow the plaster to harden fully before pulling it out of the sand and brushing off any excess. Be sure to label the plain side of the hand with a name and date so you’ll never forget just how small their hands were on that special vacation.
