Footcraft Friday: A Twist on a Classic


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.

This version of a classic turkey craft makes your kids' feet the main attraction!Pretty much every one in existence knows that you can make an adorable Turkey craft for Thanksgiving using your child’s foot as the turkey’s body and his or her hand prints as the tail. In fact, your closet is probably filled with crafts just like I’ve described.

I’m all about tradition, but I also love the idea of putting a modern twist on the classics, which I why I got really excited when I came across a variation on this project on Pinterest. Try it out and let me know: are you a turkey craft purist or did you enjoy mixing it up this year?

Thanksgiving Turkey with Foot Print Tale


  • White and Brown Paper
  • Red, Orange and Yellow Paint
  • One (or more) little feet


  1. Cut out one medium sized circle and one small circle from the brown paper. Glue the larger circle to the white paper, then glue the smaller circle, allowing a little overlap between the two. The smaller circle is the turkey’s head, the larger is its body.
  2. Paint your child’s foot with one color, and make several prints fanning out behind the turkey’s body. Repeat with additional colors/additional children.


Happy Turkey Day everyone! I’m thankful to all of you for keeping up with these blogs and for allowing me to keep your kids’ feet feeling great!
