Footprints In The Sand

Bring memories of the beach home with this darling footprint-casting kit.

Simply make a footprint in the dense, moist sand. Then collect beach water in the cup provided, and add the special powder mixture to it. Stir to a smooth, thick consistency, then pour the mixture into the footprint mold. You can even personalize your footprint with the included stylus, and use the cord to make your print ready-to-hang.

Allow 20 minutes for it to harden, then gently scoop the print out. Use the special keepsake pail to tote your creation home!

Kit can make two children's feet (up to size 2) or one adult foot. Parental supervision required. Contents made in the USA; tin made in China.

      Comments about SANDY FEET CASTING KIT:

      Used the kit for our 4 year old granddaughter's first trip to the beach in Ca., and we had lots of fun with it! We cast it in a different bucket from the pail that is included (just easier) and it turned out perfectly (be sure you get a deep enough print). This year she is visiting the beach again and bought one to do once more. We will see with delight how much her feet have grown in a years' time. I am TOTALLY 'bummed" that this item is being discontinued! I would have wanted to have a wall of feet thru the years of visits! I bought an extra kit for NEXT year, and hopefully by that time, someone will continue to carry this precious gem of memory-keeping!

              We bought 3 buckets for all the kids on our large family vaca. Each one made 2 feet easily, with some left for a starfish impression! The prints turned out as good as the picture surprisingly. We decided itd be easiest to put sand in baking pans so we could take it inside (away from mosquitos!)As for the bucket..the logo is emblazoned across and printed on. Wish itd been a sticker.

                  Comments about SANDY FEET CASTING KIT:

                  I used this recently on our first vacation to the beach with my 7.5 month old daughter and my 9.5 month old nephew. There was actually enough plaster to do both of their feet (total of 4 footprint casts) and I still had some left over. The hardest part was getting a good footprint to start with. My nephew's turned out better simply because he was more willing to let me make his footprint in the sand than my daughter was. However, I'm happy with how hers turned out especially for only paying ~$20 total for this product. I even had passersby ask me what I was doing and where they could get the kit. This product was easy to use and I would definitely recommend it for having an interesting keepsake. Just make sure you get a good footprint to work with.

                  Comments about SANDY FEET CASTING KIT:

                  This is a super cute idea but we had a few problems with it. You need to find sand that is "just right"...not too loose and not too dense. That was a bit of a challenge. My kids were able to eventually make good prints but since they made a deep impression in the heel area and in the toes area, the arch area was thin on both feet and they cracked. My kids foot sizes are 13 and 1...I think it would work much better with little, toddler sized feet. It would be a fabulous gift for someone who is taking their little one(s) to the beach for the first time!

                    We used this with 1yr 3yr & 6yr old grandchildren. It was a blast! It turned out great! I think its alittle pricey for what you get but the packaging was very attractive for little girls. Directions were very simply stated also. Thanks for a different craft idea to do with our girls!!!

                      This was a gift for new parents. They loved the keepsake but to get the baby to hold still for it was tough. It was worth the effort though!

                      I saved this for our beach trip during Spring Break vacation b/c I did not realize the unusual casting situation & had bought it for a birthday present in January. I love to remember how small her feet and hands were, so this was right down my alley! Plus, this is differnt than any other method I've used.

                          I bought 3 of these for a family vacation. They were really cute. The kids LOVED making them (ages 11, 9, 2). I did it in a foil pan, not on the beach that way I could let them sit a while to be sure they were done. The finished product was really cute, but delicate. The kids loved them.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          AMAZING DELIVERY! I ordered these at about 2pm and they arrived the very next day! Unbelievable. Packaging was great too.
