Decorating your child’s cast can be helpful in a few ways.
- It gives your child a sense of pride and accomplishment to participate in the creation of their cast
- It adds water resistance to the cast and makes it easier to clean
- It adds comfort for parents especially since plaster casts are typically covered with a light layer of fiberglass which can be rough
- A decorated cast is a constructive conversation starter for people who may not be familiar with this treatment or seeing someone so young in this type of cast
Cast Decorating Kits are $30 plus postage. If you would like to order one or need more information, please fill out our Contact Form and let us know how we can help!
