Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow… or so it goes!!
Fingers, fingerprints and feet make the best snow people! Our handprint snowmen card idea was so well received we thought we would make a footprint snowman!
As always, when painting feet with children, you want to apply the paint as fast as possible… you also want to make sure that your child is sitting/standing near the paper you want to print the footprint onto as it is hard work carrying a child – one foot painted – across the room. We always sit on a chair and put the paper under it – so once the foot is painted we just need to stand up!
What materials do you need to make a Footprint Snowman Christmas Card?
- Cardboard/Cardstock – we used blue. You can also use ready-made greeting card, which is sometimes a little easier!
- White paint – non-toxic of course
- A tickly and willing foot…
- Markers to add eyes, nose, scarf and hat – if you want to draw it on or felt or paper to make scarf and hat if you would like to stick it on
- Have a look at the
