Footprint Animal Crafts A-Z Featuring U, V & W

Footprint Crafts from A - Z featuring U, V & W

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.
