Try out this Penguin Footprint Craft from Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails, and capture the memory of your little one’s quickly growing feet. Hope you enjoy!

Supplies

  • black finger paint
  • glue stick
  • googly eyes
  • washi tape from dollar tree
  • black sharpie
  • orange construction paper
  • white cardstock

Directions

  1. Paint your child’s foot in black paint and press it against the white paper.  (Keep paper towels and wipes close by to clean off the foot.)  Then the footprint dry.  
  2. Take the sharpie and trace the footprint to give it a better shape and include the open white spot, around the arch of your child’s foot, to stand in as the penguin’s belly. Draw in wings and let the fun begin.
  3. Use the washi tape, googly eyes, and orange construction paper.  Use the washi tape for the scarf, the orange construction paper as a beak and glue on the googly eyes.  Then take the green sharpie to add earmuffs. Continue to decorate as desired.

Summer is not only hard on our electric bill, it can be tough on your kids’ feet too. Public pools, extra sports and trips away from home for camp can leave children’s feet with boo-boos, infections and fungi you don’t want to treat on your own. If your kids feet are hurting, don’t hesitate: schedule an immediate appointment with Dr. Andrew Schneider.
