Handprint & Footprint crafts are always a big hit around here, and this one was no exception. It’s been a while since we’ve done a footprint craft and it was hilarious to all involved to see how big our 8-year-old’s foot has gotten. It takes up the majority of a sheet of paper now! =) I thought this craft up ages ago – it just took a while to actually get to it.
As you can see, we made hummingbirds out of both girls’ feet. Our 14-month-old did remarkably well, though it is smudged and not perfect. If you have a toddler, please don’t expect it to be! I had my husband holding her hands and my older daughter held on to her feet. It was definitely a team project, and without their help it probably would have been a hot mess.
Paint: green, blue, black
A foot & a hand
– Paint your child’s foot green.
– Gently press onto the piece of paper.
– Clean off the foot, then repeat with the hand.
– Allow to dry, then paint on the eye and beak.
