Children grow far too quickly, clothing lasts for such a short amount of time before it no longer fits and is then either passed another for others to wear or packed away into a memories box to bring out when you are feeling nostalgic and want to remember just how small they once were.
There are so many gifts you can give to families but I believe one of the best is a way to freeze time still, to capture those younger days so you can look back in years to come and see exactly how small your children once were. Of course I can’t offer a time machine to giveaway I’m afraid but I can do the next best thing.
I have teamed up with Baby Casts and Prints for this latest giveaway. The prize available is a Holding Hands Family 3D Casting Kit worth £40.
Baby Casts & Prints was founded by Helen Buckley in 2016, after discovering a talent for producing the most perfect casts of baby’s hands & feet. Loving the fact she could put a smile on parents faces, she now produces a range of different casts, prints & gifts for families.
I actual cast both Emmy and Harry’s hands and feet when they were 6 weeks old, these are framed in my hall and are my pride and joy – they show at a glance how small the children were and although I can’t actually hold their tiny hands any more I can look at them and reminisce of those early days when they didn’t fight and argue or answer back.
The Holding Hands Family 3D Casting Kit contains everything you need to make a family cast yourselves in the comfort of your own home. It contains the moulding plaster, plaster, mixing bucket and tools. All you need to decide on is how to model your hands together – and the possibilities are endless – you could all hold hands, have hands ordered in size order, interlock fingers etc…..Whatever you decide you know that your finished product will be 100% unique to you.
Having used kits similar to this myself I thought it would be helpful to add a few tips on how to take your cast.
- Read the instructions a few times to familiarise yourself – there are full instructions and videos on the website to watch
- Lay a bin bag out under the casting bucket as it can get messy
- Practice your positioning a few times prior to casting
- Use very cold water when mixing (water from the fridge works really well)
- Be ready to go as soon as you’ve mixed your moulding plaster as it sets fast
