Seaweed Art Cards

     Here’s a clever and fun way to keep a record of your child’s footprint.

     Materials needed:

    Plaster of Paris

    Small bucket

    Sea water

    Wooden spoon for stirring

    String or wire for hanging

    First, choose a site on the beach to cast your footprint molds. The harder, moister sand near the ocean’s edge is best. Have your child walk across the sand to make deep indentations. They should be about 2 inches deep. Next, mix the plaster in the bucket  following  the directions. It should have a creamy consistency. Pour into the molds and let dry about 20-25 minutes. If you would like to hang your footprints, take a string or wire about 4 inches long, fold it in half and tie a knot about an inch from the bottom. As your footprints art drying, gently press the knotted end about 1 inch from the top of the foot.  To remove the footprints from the sand, gently dig out from underneath and let dry in the sun.
