I’m not the only Crafty McCrafterson around this house…
Sometimes Miss L. and Mr. Hoff like to get in on the craft action too!
It took all three of us to get her cute little snowman footprints perfectly imprinted on some canvases the other day. These little snowman feet will be her gift to family members this Christmas!
Here is what we used:
She giggled, and told us, “It tickles!” while I painted some white paint on her feet…she was so excited to be making something!
I think this craft is pretty self-explanatory, but here are a few tips for you:
1) Dab your kiddo’s painted foot on a piece of paper to remove excess paint before dabbing it on the canvas.
2) After you make the footprint, use a 1.2″ brush to fill it in and make it look a little more “fat”. I also fill in the toes a little more so that you can really see them…they are the cutest part!
