Footprint Gumball Machine Craft - kids foot art

It is no secret that I love footprint crafts. My latest footprint crafts have been inspired by famous works of art. Last night, I felt inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night. I was ready to start our Starry night project and then passed by this gumball machine at the house we are staying at during our home build.


This sparked a whole new inspiration.

Footprint Gumball Craft

Paint the heel in white & the rest of the foot in red. Press in onto a piece of paper.


Paint the gumball machine top with red & silver paint.


Paint the dial & gumball door on with the silver & add details with black.


Have your child dip their little finger into different colored paint and press into the white to make the gumballs. Cute, quick & easy!

After my detour, I went back to my main event.

Footprint Starry Night

I painted my daughter’s foot in black & then pressed it onto a piece of blue paper.



I used a Sharpie to draw in the rest of the curvy black structure depicted by the foot .


I used the Sharpie again to draw in the village at the bottom of the scene.


I quickly painted the drawing. It didn’t need to be perfect.


Next I painted in the mountains.


And then began adding in the stars & swirls in the sky.


I cannot wait to decorate our new home with all of our new works of art.
