Last night we tackled U, V & W in our footprint animal crafts from A-Z. That leaves us with only 3 more letters. These last few letters leave us with very few options. We opted to make a mythical animal for our U because of our lack of choices. Mai wanted a rainbow colored unicorn, so that is what we did. Here is how.
U is for Unicorn
Start by painting your child’s foot in the colors of the rainbow.
Press the painted foot onto a piece of paper.
Paint in a rainbow mane, ears & the unicorn’s horn.
Paint in the tail & legs. I actually messed up on the legs. Here is a little trick if you mess up on one of these crafts & don’t want to start over. Cut around the project, leaving out the error & glue it down to a piece of paper in the same color.
Paint or draw in the face with markers to finish it off.
V is for Vulture
Paint your child’s foot in red & black as shown.
Paint in the hind feathers on the side.
Paint in the beak & feet and use white paint to paint in neck feathers.
Dab on the whites of the eyes & outline the feathers. Use a marker to draw in the facial details.
W is for Walrus
Paint your child’s foot in brown & press onto a piece of paper.
Paint in the cheeks & nose and then the mouth & tusks.
Dab in the whites of the eyes & paint in the flippers. Use a marker to draw in whiskers & nostrils.
Paint in the eyeballs & paint in the tips of the flippers.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
Being that I always loved unicorns as a kid, I truly have a new favorite of your footprint crafts and seriously the rainbow colors makes it just perfect! 🙂
