Footcraft Friday: Snowmen for Christmas

Paint both your child's feet for a project that's twice as nice!If you're sadly imagining another not-white holiday in Houston as we gear up in the weeks before Christmas, you can take heart in this statistic: true winter weather can be a big problem for kids’ little feet as they get crammed into boots that may rub and cause blisters, or get stuffed into thick socks and shoes that cause sweat and make their feet more prone to fungal infections like athlete’s foot.

Thankfully, we don’t really have to worry about those cold-weather foot woes here in Houston, but we also don’t get to enjoy some of the season’s simple pleasures, like building a great big snowman in your back yard.

Not to worry: just try out this Footprint Snowman craft from Handprint and Footprint Art. Bonus: you don’t need 10 layers of clothing to enjoy this winter activity!


  • White Paint
  • Colored Markers
  • Colored Paper


To make this adorable Footprint Snowman, place a white footprint on a piece of colored paper. When it dries, paint or draw on a hat, scarf, carrot nose, coal eyes, buttons, and arms.
