Thanks for the ideas to enhance my plaster hand lesson. Yes, the kids =
do whine a little about sweaty hands, but since the gloves are larger =
(adult size - from the paint dept. at Ace Hardware) it's not too bad. =
We pull the excess glove latex to the side of the hand that is not being =
plastered. They only plaster the top or the palm of the hand since we =
hand the finished hands on the wall. We glue gun a tab on to the hand =
for hanging. If the fingers were not plastered well enough and they =
become wobbly, we splint them on the inside of the hand cast with =
popsicle stiks and glue gun glue. Fabric for sleeves, old watches, =
rings, press-on nails, etc are all added with a glue gun as well as any =
props that might be in the hand. When there are 90 or so hands hanging =
on the wall the kids thinks it looks creepy and cool. The kids like =
this lesson probably because it is so bizarre.
