What is it about little feet that make them so adorable? I have always loved baby feet. I feel likewise about toddler feet too. That is why footprint crafts are my favorite. I just can’t get enough of them & my daughter loves to make them too. We have quite the collection of footprint art hanging up around our home. Last night we were talking about grasshoppers & crickets, which of course ended with us having to make a grasshopper craft.
Paint your child’s foot in green & press onto a piece of paper. Let it dry. Use paint or magic marker to draw in an eye & antennae onto the heel.
Draw or paint in the legs & details for the body.
We used chalk to highlight the segments.
Draw or paint in a branch or leaves for a final touch.
This will make a great addition to our growing collection of footprint crafts.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us onFacebookas well.
I love our family weekends. Every six weekends the stars align & my husband & I have a full weekend off together. Saturday was a gorgeous day. We took Mai on an outing to the zoo. She loved every second and we got to enjoy a rare family day together.
We had more fun plans scheduled for Sunday. We were going to take Mai to a local fair, but alas the rain came & it was a gloomy day filled with thunderstorms & flash flood warnings. We did not go to the fair that day, but rainy days can be fun days too. It had been a while since we had done any of our crafts because we have been so busy enjoying the summer. I have to admit, I was kind of excited to stay in and have a rainy day craft day with my daughter & my husband was happy to get a much needed nap.
Mai loves playing with craft pom poms. We have a huge bag of multi-colored & multi-sized pom poms. We broke them out & decided to have some fun. My daughter is a fan of insects, especially caterpillars. She likes to line up the balls & make caterpillars with them.
She said “Mama make a caterpillar too.” & that is how it all started.

It was my daughter that cleverly named our insects her pom pom pets. She loved them & even wanted to take them to take a nap with her.
