Footcraft Friday: Back to School Apple Craft


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 sweet apple footprint would make a great card for grandparentsOh my gosh, the kids are back to school (I can't believe how fast this summer went, can you?!), and that immediately called to mind the old-school notion of bringing an apple for the teacher. To celebrate this time honored tradition, we're sharing a sweet footprint apple craft you can try at home with your little ones!

Footprint Apple Craft


  • Paper
  • Red, green and brown paint
  • Brush



  1. Paint both your child’s feet red (or whatever color apple you’d like to cerate) and make side-by-side prints, 2-3 inches apart. The toes of the feet should be angled slightly outward.
  2. Trace the outline of an apple around the footprints.
  3. Draw two seeds in the space between the prints.
  4. Add in a stem, leaves and any other details you may wish to include.

Your children’s feet are meant to be treasured—not to hurt! If your little one is experiencing any kind of discomfort when they walk, run or put on their shoes, schedule an appointment with children’s podiatrist Dr. Andrew Schneider.
