Footcraft Friday: Alien Inspired Craft

Keep the magic of Home alive with this footprint craft!In my recent vacation Netflix binges, I once again stumbled across the popular alien-invasion kids movie, Home, and re-streamed it with my family. In celebration of this soon-to-be classic kiddie flick, I found a Home themed footprint craft on The Pinterested Parent. Let me know how your little aliens like it!


  • Pink, blue and white paint
  • Paper



  1. Paint your child’s foot and toes a dusty-rose colored pink. Make a print on the paper. Let dry.
  2. Paint a blue ‘coat’ over the pink footprint, starting at the top of the arch and continuing until midway through the ball of your child’s foot. Let dry again.
  3. Add in the details: ‘ears’ on each side of your child’s heel, eyes, eyebrows, a mouth—you can even trim out the jacket. Go crazy with details—the more your kids can join in, the more fun this craft will be!
