I’m always looking for new crafts and activities to do with my son. He loves to paint and I love footprint keepsakes so when our family friend, Keyna, sent me this idea, I couldn’t wait to get started. Footprint crafts are a great activity for kids from the infant stage through early elementary school. I found this activity worked really well with my toddler because he was able to help at each step – he even painted his own feet. I’m so happy with how his Frankenstein Feet turned out and they have made a cute addition to our Halloween decor and will for years to come.
You will need:
- White paper
- Green finger paint
- Black marker
- Plastic eyes
- Paper towels
- Water (to clean feet)
- Set up someplace you can make a mess.
- Dip a paper towel in green paint and wipe across your child’s foot until it’s fully covered in paint (except the arch of the foot)
- Firmly press foot down on paper
- Repeat step 2 + 3 with other foot then wipe feet clean with water and paper towel
- Let dry completely. Draw on mouth and “grrrrr” then glue on the eyes
- Don’t forget to add your child’s name and the date on the back or bottom corner
