| You will need:
Mix the plaster according to the instructions on the package and pour it into the mold. When it had a few minutes to "set" we had the kids put their hand in to make the print. It came out like a plaque.
- Plaster of Paris
- Coffee can lid, ice cream container lid, etc. (something to use for a round mold)

If you're unable to Acquire plaster of paris and would like an easy replacement, here's a good idea...
I have used white playdough... an entire container is what I used. I shaped it into about a 5" diameter and flattened to a thickness of about 1/2"-1"(inch). Then I had my little boy press his hand down, helping him to make a visible print, pushing his little fingers down gently. Then before
setting aside, I used a straw to make little indentions of tiny circles all the way around. I set aside (up away from my son's sight!) and let air dry about 5days, maybe less. When dry I filled in any cracks with white toothpaste...let dry for 24 hrs, then wrote his name and date on back. Finally,
painted. It's now a beautiful decoration on my dresser next to his baby picture.
