You will need:
- washable paint
- scissors (I folded my cardstock and then cut it in half)
- marker or pen
- SECOND person (helper not pictured)
Stick your kid’s foot in some paint. Get someone ELSE to hold the baby/toddler on their lap.
Take the cardstock and press it against the child's foot. This is A LOT easier than trying to bring the child to the cardstock.
You should also have some wipes handy to clean that foot off when you’re done.
Have some extra cardstock handy, because kids are wiggly. Even with your helper's assistance, you will end up with some footprints like this:
Write something cute on there. I chose “Little feet, big heart.” Cute, right??
I also like to put the year on footprint crafts because I know my brain will not remember when their feet were that little.
Write a short message inside, and you're done!
Not every footprint will be perfect, but they will all be super cute, and your loved ones will get a kick out of these Valentines.
So cute and easy, right?
