We are now more than halfway done with our footprint animal crafts from A – Z. It has been a fun project for Mai & I. She gets a kick out of seeing me turn her little feet into artwork & has learned about a few new animals. Last night our crafts covered the letters L, M & N. Our first one was L & while we tossed around a few different animals that began with L, we went with a lion. Here’s how.
Footprint Lion Craft
Paint your child’s foot mostly in yellow. Paint a lighter shade of yellow or white in a T-shape as shown. Press the foot onto a piece of paper.
Paint the lion’s mane around the heel & a pair of ears on top. Paint in the tail.
Dot two white circles onto the paper for eyes & paint in eyebrows. Let the paint dry.
Draw in the finer facial features with black magic marker.
Our next craft was done similarly.
Paint your child’s foot in mostly brown with a lighter shade of brown in the middle as shown. Press the foot onto a piece of paper.
Paint in the ears & tail and dot 2 white circles on for the eyes & let dry. Use a magic marker to draw in the finer details on the face.
Add tree branches & vines for a final touch.
The narwhal was a new animal for my daughter. She thought that the horn was funny.
Paint your child’s foot in a gray or blue color & press it into a piece of paper. Paint in a side & rear fin. Dot on a white circle for the eye & paint in the horn. Paint some spots on the top of the narwhal & let the paint dry. Draw in the eye, eyebrow & mouth with a magic marker.
