Show and Tell Friday ~ Precious Little Hand

This sweet little plaster hand print belongs to my oldest daughter and was made when she was just in 1st grade (25 years ago). It hung on the wall for many years but is now kept safe on a bookshelf. two years later when my next two daughters were in first grade, the teachers decided the project was too involved and sadly, more plaster hand prints were not to be.


the owner of the above hand also LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this book... It was read countless times in our home... I think I still have it memorized... Dum ditty, dum ditty, dum, dum, dum.

Visit Kelli for more Show and Tell Friday.

Visiting you from Kelli's Show and Tell!

I think the plaster hand is not only a memory, its AMAZING - especially effective being just white and the way you've displayed it!

Leanne said...

I have a plaster print of my daughter's hand. I only hope it lasts as long as yours. TFS.

It was so wonderful when they use to do the hand prints. The one you have is really a nice one.

I love the handprint! Fortunately for me, all four of my children did handprints when they were 5 years old.

I'd like to try and make them with my grandbabies!

Oh wonderful!!!! What a great, personal, treasure!!! Our kids' favorite book was Lamont the Lonely Monster.

My Show n Tell is about our new Easter Lily. Stop by if you can find some time today. Happy weekend.

How precious! I have a book that I have memorized too: The Little Engine That Could. My oldest is now 21 and I think I read that bok to him almost daily. Precious memories aren't they?

aww, that pulls on the heart strings doesn't it?!

A lovely keepsake for you and your daughter.

It's a shame they don't do the handprints anymore. I think that plaster is on the list of dangerous chemicals for elementary kids now....though it is probably just the plaster dust from before mixing. ......sigh.

Joy said...

Sweet handprint--sweet keepsake. I remember doing one of those when I was in kindergarten--last century. I've traced around my kid's hands, and I've kept that for years. I like how you displayed it.

This is just precious! I love the plaster hand AND the book.

We all love Dr. Suess and Hands Hands... at our house. Can't wait to read it to our grands:)

Happy S&D!

What a sweet memento from your daughter. I wish that I would have them for our sons. We must think ahead for our grandchildren:)

What a precious memory. When I used to teach 1st grade we made handprint pillowcases with all the kids handprints. The parents loved them.
