Fun Footprint Christmas Crafts

Fun Footprint Christmas Crafts: As part of the Bostik Bloggers this month I have been asked to share a Christmas craft. We have now been part of the group for over twelve months. Which also means I have a Christmas Angel one from last year. Keen to do something different this time round I opted to used Kippers footprints to make a picture for the grandparents.

To makes something similar you will need:

  • White and coloured card
  • Brown paint and paint brush
  • Willing toddler feet
  • Red pom pom
  • Black Sharpie
  • Google eyes
  • Bostik Foam Pads
  • Bostik White Glue

Step One: The hardest part of this getting those footprints. I used acrylic paint as it was all I had. Mine is a washable variety, you may just want to check this! I painted the bottom of his feet while he was sitting in his high chair. I had already cut the card into smaller rectangles. I placed the card on a hardback book so it was easier to place his foot on it. I used the palm of my hand to push his foot down gently. Remember to make sure you do the toes too!

Step Two: Once the paint has dried use a sharpie to add the antlers and some white glue to add the eyes and the pom pom for the nose.


Step Three: Using the foam pads you can then attach the white card to the coloured card. To make either a Christmas card or a picture.

I love this craft as its so easy to do. If you would like some more inspiration for some more footprint and handprint crafts then check out some of the suggestions below. There are some more ideas in my keepsakes post as well.

    I was pondering whether to do Christmas cards with my kids and after reading this I think I will. Let’s just hope they have the patience to do 60+ cards 😉 #BloggerClubUK

    It was just the other day that I reframed my boys footprints from when they were toddlers. They are now teenagers! Such a lovely thing to keep 🙂

    How lovely. I done something similar on a rock with my son footprint when he was about 1 year old and cherish it until today. This craft is fantastic. Very vestige. He should be framed.

    My five year old daughter did this in nursery a few years ago, I want to do it with her and her 9 month old sister, they would be perfect for Christmas cards too xx

    We love arts an crafts here. Such a lovely idea and something you can do with all of the kids whatever age, however I think my teens feet are better off in shoes and socks than on the card
