Easy Footprint Christmas Tree


It is that time again!  Time for Christmas crafts!  With the 2 toddlers, I have tried focusing on toddler friendly easy Christmas crafts.

Supplies:
Construction Paper
Green Paint
Glue
Pompoms (or other decor)




I use a clip board and a cotton ball to do the footprints.  The cotton balls don't tickle their feet as much and spread the paint more evenly and a clip board is easy to control.  Make their footprints with the heals overlapping (the top of the tree) and the balls of the feet separate (bottom of the tree).

I mixed regular green acrylic paint and green glitter paint to make it shiny.  After it dried I added glue to different spots of the tree (Z added glue on this one for the 'star' which is why it is a huge glop!).  The kids put the pompoms on and it is the cutest little footprint Christmas tree ever!

  1. Such a cute idea! But how do you keep your kiddos from getting green paint every where after they make the foot print?!?!?!?

    This would be a great addition to our hop: http://suchamama.com/2013/12/02/learn-through-play-hop-december/

    1. Thanks for stopping in! I have them in their booster seats at the table and just have a wipe ready to wipe their foot off as soon as I do the print! And then I do the next. I will head your way. Thanks for the invite
