Spring craft

Hi there, happy Monday!

We’ve been enjoying this beautiful day of sunshine and nice weather while we can.  The weather man says rain for the next few days 😦  Hopefully it clears up by Sunday for my 12k.  I’m not a big fan of running in the cold or rain.

We enjoyed a nice outdoor workout this morning followed by a short run.  The love nugget enjoys being outdoor so much.  Can’t wait for this weather to stick around for more than a few days!

Last weekend, we finally had a little bit of time to get a Spring craft done.  Every month we do a hand print to hang in our living room.  This month we switched it up a little bit and did a footprint craft instead.  It turned out pretty cute and was very simple so I thought I’d share 🙂

Footprint butterflies from pinterest

Supplies ~

  • canvas (I used 12 x 12)
  • your choice colors of tempura paint
  • ribbon
  • hot glue or craft glue
  • your little ones cute feet!

This craft is easiest if you have more than one person to help out with painting and stamping the foot prints.  Luckily Grammie was here to help out!

 

Make sure to have a wet, old towel close by to wipe off your little ones feet.

Using a paint brush, paint a few different colors onto one foot.

Carefully, stamp the foot onto the canvas.  The easiest way I’ve found is to hold the canvas and press it up to their foot rather than trying to put the foot onto the canvas.  Don’t worry if it slips, it just adds a little character!  The paint is also waterproof and will wipe off with water if you make a big boo boo.

Repeat with the other foot trying to copy the paint pattern from the previous foot.  When you stamp the feet together, make sure you do them in the opposite direction with big toes facing outwards.

Since I used a larger canvas, and the love nugget has pretty small feet, I stamped his feet four times creating two butterflies.
