Focused Play: Easter Footprint Art
We did a handprint art for Christmas, and I thought Easter would be a good time to do another hand/footprint art project.
I decided that a footprint would probably be easier to do with a little one than a handprint. After seeing several ideas on Pinterest, I decided upon a footprint carrot. I thought the carrot needed a little extra something to make it more Easter themed, so I drew a little bunny to hold the carrot.
- cardstock paper or construction paper
- washable (finger) paint
It took us a couple of days and a dozen or more tries to get good footprints. It's rather difficult to get a clear footprint from a round, wiggly foot! haha. So, we did a few attempts one day and then a few more another day.
Eventually, we got some good prints! We made three copies: one for us and one to send to each set of grandparents. I really liked how it came out, and know I'll cherish having that sweet little footprint as a keepsake of this moment with him.
