Christmas Art Work:

A pair of cute little feet make a lovely Christmas tree. 

And doesn't Christmas reminds us of snowmen? You can create separate snowmen of all your children. The different feet sizes will make them stand out.

Easter art

Thanksgiving arts and crafts

This is one of my favorites.

Below is a lovely peacock made with one footprint and 3 handprints. You can make a turkey instead of the peacock to give it a Thanksgiving look.

The whole family can leave a mark!

Cut out the footprints (ideally in different colors) of all family members and paste them altogether. Tada!!

...or how about making a snowmen family with not just your baby's footprint, but the whole family lending its feet!

Baby Footprint Art using Salt Dough

It is super easy to make salt dough. Salt dough products last for a life time, even more!

Mix the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup All-purpose flour
  • Half a cup salt
  • Half a cup water
  1. Mix them well and roll out the dough. 
  2. Get the foot impressions.
  3. Bake it for 4 hours in 200 degrees Celsius.
  4. Take out and let it cool. Paint it (you can ask your other child to help) and/or use glitter to decorate it.

See, there are a hundred ways (or even more!) to cherish those lovely feet and make some super-cute memories. And you don't have to be an Arts and Craft genius for this - just use our ideas and your love!
