Foot Craft Friday: New M&Ms and Candy Craft

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

The finished result - candy corn foot print artOMG, OMG, Halloween candy is already in stores (and did you SEE the new M&M and Oreo collaboration?! Epic!!) As the day comes closer , the ubiquitous bowls of candy corn will appear everywhere. It’s super-hard to resist at this time of year, and we give in to our kids’ requests for the sugary snacks even though we know that this type of treat puts all of us at greater risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

In the candy-filled spirit of the season, here’s a healthier way you can indulge in Halloween candy corn, while also preserving a sweet memory of your child’s quickly-growing feet!

Candy Corn Footprints  (from Juggling with Kids)

Supplies:

-Paint (orange, yellow, white)

-Paint brush

-Black construction paper

-Letter stickers or a Sizzix die cutter

-Scrapbook paper

-Frame

Directions:

1. Print children’s footprints using acrylic paints onto black construction paper.

2. Cut them out and paste them onto orange scrapbook paper.

3. Using a Sizzix die cutter or sticky letters, spell out Happy Halloween.

4. Frame the image (optional) or photograph the painted foot to make a sweet greeting card.

Clearly, if we’re getting into foot craftery with our kids’ feet, they matter a lot to all of us, so it’s important  to remember that little feet should be pain free! If your son or daughter is experiencing any kind of foot pain, schedule an appointment with your Houston podiatrist so you can treasure those little tootsies instead of worrying about them!
