Footcraft Friday: Sailing Craft

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

At this time, our office continues to be open to 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. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or 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.

The finished footprint sailboat!Does summer 2018 have you dreaming about hitting the water for a lovely family sail ( if so, don’t forget boat shoes for your little ones, as fungal infections like athlete’s foot run rampant on wet surfaces like boat and pool decks.)

Why not gear up for the excitement (real or imagined) with this adorable footprint sail boat craft, guaranteed to preserve the memory of your little one’s quickly-growing feet. Thanks to Crafty Morning for the craft inspiration!

Footprint Sailboat

Materials Needed:

• Paint

•Paintbrush

•White cardstock paper

• Black Marker

•One little Foot (of course!)

Directions

1. Start by painting your child’s footprint with red paint and stamp it on a piece of white cardstock paper. I like to use cardstock paper because normal construction paper wrinkles when it dries.

2. Draw a line and paint in the sails with blue paint. Use their fingerprints to make a flag at the top and add water/sun in the background to finish it!

This craft is fun and easy, but figuring out what’s causing your child’s foot pain isn’t always that simple. That’s where I come in: if it hurts when your little one walks, runs or plays, schedule an appointment with Dr. Andrew Schneider right away!
