We are enjoying our Florida vacation, mostly on the beach. I wanted to have the kids help me make something special to thank their Grandma for all she has done for us to make our trip special. So on our trip to the beach yesterday we made some footprint stones for her backyard, so she can remember the kids running through her yard.
We picked up some plaster of paris from Walmart, it only cost about $5.50 for 8 lbs and we used less than half of it. Then at the beach we mixed it in a plastic bucket with ocean water until a bit thicker than pancake batter. Then the kids made footprints in some wet sand for me. I poured just enough plaster to fill each print and then let it sit while we played at the beach.
It set up in about 45 minutes and then we rinsed them in the ocean and took them home to cure the rest of the day.
Last night we placed them in the back yard biggest to smallest.
The kids were so excited to give these to their Grandma and it was a fun and easy project. Thanks for stopping by!
What a truly precious and thoughtful gift! I absolutely love this!
