Foot Craft Friday: Guitars


Our office continues to be open to all 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. If you prefer to wait in your car, just give us a call and we will call or text you when we are ready to bring you straight into a treatment room. Our entire staff is wearing masks and we encourage you to do the same.

For those patients who cannot or still 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.

A footprint guitar is a sweet way to capture the print of your little one's feetI have three kids and, I’ll admit, sometimes our house looks a little less than perfectly organized. Just a little.

I recently read that, if you want to get your kids toys straightened out, put pictures on boxes of the kind of toy that should go into that area. Well, then I found this cute craft project idea on Crafty Morning and thought—here’s the perfect picture for the instrument sorting box. Whenever we get to that project…

But hey, what could be cuter than turning your child’s foot into a guitar? Forget the organizing, just do this craft!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Orange Paint

White Paper

Black Sharpie


1. Start by having you or your child paint their feet with orange washable paint. Have them step down on a piece of white cardstock paper and slowly lift up.

2. After the orange paint dries, draw on some guitar strings and music notes dancing around it!

3. If using for an organizing project, consider laminating for a longer lasting project.

Pretty simple right? Capturing sweet memories with your children is the easy part; figuring out what’s wrong when their feet hurt can be tougher. That’s where I come in: if foot pain is keeping your child from enjoying his or her daily routine, schedule an appointment with your Houston podiatrist right away. Aches and pains aren’t just a part of growing up: your child’s foot should never hurt!
