Parents and children

The original way to keep cute heart memories


Childhood baby - the perfect time for his parents. I want to keep the memory of the first step and the first word. The casts of the legs and palms are stored in plaster and cast in silicone. Here is another way to preserve pleasant memories. It can even be carried everywhere. Make a keychain with a print of your favorite palm.

For the project will need:

  • plastic film (you can purchase a special set for children's creativity);
  • acrylic paints (choose glossy);
  • tassel;
  • permanent marker;
  • scissors;
  • pliers:
  • a ring for a charm;
  • parchment paper;
  • hole puncher

Please note that matte acrylic paints are not as resistant. So choose glossy. Smear the kid's pen with acrylic paint. The layer must be thick enough.

Help the child to leave an imprint on the film. You can try to make several options to choose the clearest. After that, you will have to interrupt work and take the child to wash their hands.

Traces of paint, resulting from unsuccessful experiments, it is easy to remove with warm water or an alcohol wipe.

Allow the paint to dry completely. You can add the inscription on the back of the film. It can be a message, a wish, or simply the name of the child with the date of birth. If the kid can write, he can choose the text himself and write it.

Cut out the handprints, leaving a small distance on all sides. This is important because the film will be deformed.

Make holes for the chain at the base of the palms or around the finger. The most convenient way to do this is a hole punch, but you can use an awl or a knitting needle.

Cover the baking sheet with parchment paper and lay out your palms.

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees and place a pan with a palm for a few minutes. We need to get the edges turned up a bit.

In the oven palm should be kept only a couple of minutes. If the fingers connect, separate them with a knife or spatula.

If the palm becomes too voluminous, you can slightly press it with a spatula. But you may like this form.

Allow the palm to cool completely and coat the paint with PVA glue or glossy varnish.

Thread a metal ring through the hole. At this stage, the plastic will be very hard, so we punched a hole in advance.

Connect all the details of the key fob. You can give a souvenir to relatives or leave for yourself.
