DIY Handprint Jewelry Dish

Do you like keeping special mementos of your kids? I have a friend who had her children’s hands cast in plaster when they were babies. She said that she wanted to immortalize them so that one day, she’ll look at the hands and remember them when they were so small.

This is a great project for you and the kids!

I wanted to do that, too. I mean, I understood the sentiments, but I’m just not willing to pay the price. So I looked for an alternative and luckily, I found one that used clay. This is a DIY project for a handprint jewelry dish. When I told my five-year-old daughter about it, she got excited.

We went to work on the project one weekend. I let her paint on them, too. We made two jewelry dishes using her right and left hands. It was truly a weekend to remember. She couldn’t get the smile off her face!

Have the kids paint them for added fun.
