Footcraft Friday: C is for Corn

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

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.

Footprint corn is as delicious as your child's sweet footprint!Teaching your kids the alphabet is a sweet part of the growing-up process—and so is capturing the imprint of their quickly-growing feet!

That’s why I love this integrative art project from Fantastic Fun and Learning: it creates a sweet footprint memento while also teaching your little one the challenging sounds of c! Hope you enjoy!

Supplies

  • White and green construction paper
  • Yellow paint
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Directions

  1. Paint your child’s foot yellow and stamp on white construction paper. Let dry.
  2. Cut the footprint out, leaving just a small ring of white around the print.
  3. Take the green construction paper and cut out the husk as seen on the right.
  4. Glue the cut-out footprint behind the husk so that just the toes and the ball of the foot are peeking out.
  5. You’re done, now sing those ABCs!
