Easy Hand and Foot Print Craft

Pin It

Preserving your child's hand and foot prints are a quintessential craft. This star shaped craft is easy and looks great.

Materials:

  • paper or molding clay
  • pencil to make holes
  • various colored tempura paints
  • ribbon
Directions:

  1. Flatten and shape a big piece of paper  or molding clay. I prefer paper clay because it's lighter and softer. This one looks like a star.
  2. Poke two holes at the top.
  3. Press the child's hand and then foot into the clay.
  4. Paint the background one color, then the hand and foot prints different colors. Be careful not to mix the paints too much or it looks brown.  Allow to dry.
  5. Later paint the back also for added strength.
  6. Tie up with a ribbon.
  7. Don't forget to put the date and child's name.
