Is your summer not going according to plan? Yeah, ours isn’t either. And one of the biggest challenges is keeping your children entertained. I’m sure you’ve tried just about everything by this point. But here’s something you may not have tried yet, an at-home alginate casting kit. Hear me out on this one, it sounds weird at first, but it’s actually pretty cool.
So the company is called Pearl of my Heart (which makes you think jewelry, right? but it’s so much more) and they sell easy to use amateur-friendly casting kits (specifically for doing castings of hands). They come with everything you need and very detailed instruction on how to do it. The process takes less than 30 minutes of work-time, and you’ll be amazed at your results. We recommend letting your children do casting of their own hands. The alginate powder in their kit is hypoallergenic and non-toxic. It’s based on organic seaweed and has passed strict testing so it’s completely safe for them. It doesn’t even matter if they have trouble holding still. The mold hardens in 3 to 9 minutes (using warm water will keep it on the short end of the time range) and the mold only fully hardens in the last ten seconds, so there is plenty of wiggle room (see what I did there?).
It’s not only a fun activity but an educational one, casting and mold making are important skills for many industries and there’s some fun science involved in the process. Plus you end up with a perfect replica of your child’s hands! You can keep this a unique keepsake or give it as a gift to their grandparents!
