This is a beautiful way to preserve your child’s handprint! No children? You can also follow the same steps for a paw print. After making homemade chalk with the kids, I started looking for other crafts we could make using Plaster of Paris. The best part is that you don’t have to buy an expensive kit at the store!
What you will need:
- Plaster of Paris
- Cold Water
- Mixing Container
- Mixing Spoon
- Paper Plate
**Have your child open their hand and allow you to slowly press into the plaster and slowly remove. Kids can be quick to remove their hand and cause the handprint to mess up.
**If you have little ones who may not cooperate with the plaster and opening their hands, this is a really great idea using playdough to make a 3-D handprint mold.
