The Foot Print

  • Gather your supplies
  • You’ll want your warm rags, wipes, paintbrush, and brown paint within reach.
  • Have the kids sit on a chair( Wiggly alert: Kids get very tickly while getting the paint on their foot)
  • Paint the bottom of kiddo’s foot using a flat paint brush and DON’T LET GO
  • Make the footprint (The key here is speed)
  • Wipe off your kiddo using a wet wipe
  • Let dry

Once the paint dries, grab a minimally blown up balloon to get to the cutest part- the nose of the reindeer! Dip the tip of the balloon in red paint and dab it to look like the nose of reindeer. Now, it’s time to decorate the canvas with Christmas colored dots, Red,Yellow, Green, orange! Pick the balloon and start dabbing it around the canvas to make it look Christmassy! 

Let that sheet dry and you have one of a kind inexpensive masterpiece to give to family and friends for the Holidays!This Reindeer footprint looks really pretty in a $4 Walmart frame
