Foot Craft Friday: Footprint Easter Bunnies

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.

Hand and Footprint Bunnies

Supplies

  • Pink and White Paint
  • Markers
  • Construction Paper
  • Mini Paper Plate
  • Googly Eyes
  • Pom Poms
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Double Stick Tape

Directions

  1. Painting both of your child’s feet and hands. For the feet, paint the outside and toes white and use pink for the middle. For hands, painted the outside and finger tops white and paint the palm and a little bit of each finger pink. Don’t paint thumbs.
  2. Make the prints on construction paper. Let them dry, then cut them out.
  3. While prints are drying, let your child make the bunny face out of the mini paper plate. Draw on a mouth and whiskers with markers, then glued on googly eyes and a pom pom nose.
  4. Cut out an egg-shaped piece of construction paper for the body and curved ovals for paws. Glue paws and handprints (they will be the bunny’s feet) on to the body.
  5. When the face is dry, use double stick tape to attach the plate head to the body and the footprints (they will be the bunny’s ears) to the head. Ears can stick straight up or hang down and look floppy.

This is a good project to do with preschool aged or older children, as a little patience is need and the child’s involvement is encouraged. While you’re working together, talk to your child and ask if his or her feet ever hurt. If the answer is yes, schedule an appointment with Dr. Andrew Schneider today!
