When I shared photos of my son recently, I had a few comments about how our children grow up so fast. I wanted to share a way to preserve a part of childhood.
When my son was about 4 yrs old I made a cast of his hands at my dental office where I am a hygienist. Yep, I know you all hate the dentists. I bet you wouldn’t hate our office. Especially when you know I get to make neat stuff like this there.
My son’s praying hands.
Let’s just say coordination has never been his strength. He had trouble making the praying hands, but I still love them.
Here you can see how big his hands are compared to when he was a 4 yr old.
Since you probably don’t have access to dental materials, I found some hand casting kits online.
I really liked the selection at CastingGifts.com.
Christmas Ornament Kit
Keepsake Shadow Boxes
The choices are endless. It is a great way to preserve memories of your children’s youth and size.
