Foot Craft Friday: Start the New Year off on the Right Foot


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.

For the very last Footcraft Friday of 2014, I thought I’d share an adorable craft project idea, found on Crayons & Cuties in Kindergarten, that I thought could become a part of your annual New Year celebrations, preserving the memory of your child’s growing hands and feet as the time goes by (all too quickly.)

Enjoy the project, and here’s to a year of health, happiness and comfy feet for you and your entire family! And to help us make that wish come true, be sure to schedule an appointment with Dr. Andrew Schneider at the first sign of discomfort for you or your little ones’ feet.

Starting Off the New Year with A “High Five” and on the “Right Foot”   An example of the 2014 version of this New Year's kids craft


Poster board
Labels and/or black marker


  • Paint your child’s hands and have them make side-by-side prints on the poster board (the left hand will be the 2, the right will be the 0.) Next, paint your child’s feet and have them leave their prints to the right of the hand prints (the left foot will be the 1, the right foot the 5.)
  • Let paint dry. While the paint dries, ask your children questions such as their favorite book or toy, or for younger children, height and weight. Record their answers on labels that can be stuck to the poster board, or directly on the poster board in black marker.
  • Once answers have been placed and paint is dry, draw the digits of 2015 onto the hands and feet as noted above, or draw 2015 on another paper or label, cut out and paste onto hand and foot prints.
  • Frame and repeat again for years to come!
