Footcraft Friday: Starfish

This footprint starfish craft is an adorable way to start the summer. Are you guys dreaming of summer vacation yet? I know it’s still a few weeks away, but with Memorial Day right around the corner, a beach vacation may just be in the works for you and your little ones.

Two things to get you in the mood: Stock up on sunscreen (and remember to slather it on your kids, especially on their feet, a spot that’s often forgotten) and try out this Starfish footprint craft project from Easy Peasy and Fun.


  • Blue paper
  • Orange paint
  • Black marker


  1. Paint one or both of your child’s feet orange.  Press it down on the paper.
  2. Rinse and repeat 4 more times in circular “pattern” with toes pointing to the middle of the circle.
  3. With permanent marker draw in the eyes and mouth and any other details you desire.
  4. If the shape didn’t come out just as cute as you’d like (sometimes the color doesn’t spread evenly or there are blank spaces from the footprint) you can either “correct” that with a paintbrush or trace the starfish shape.
