Footcraft Friday: Dreaming of the Cold?

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.

Try out this Penguin Footprint Craft from Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails, and capture the memory of your little one’s quickly growing feet. Hope you enjoy!

Supplies

  • black finger paint
  • glue stick
  • googly eyes
  • washi tape from dollar tree
  • black sharpie
  • orange construction paper
  • white cardstock

Directions

  1. Paint your child’s foot in black paint and press it against the white paper.  (Keep paper towels and wipes close by to clean off the foot.)  Then the footprint dry.  
  2. Take the sharpie and trace the footprint to give it a better shape and include the open white spot, around the arch of your child’s foot, to stand in as the penguin’s belly. Draw in wings and let the fun begin.
  3. Use the washi tape, googly eyes, and orange construction paper.  Use the washi tape for the scarf, the orange construction paper as a beak and glue on the googly eyes.  Then take the green sharpie to add earmuffs. Continue to decorate as desired.

Summer is not only hard on our electric bill, it can be tough on your kids’ feet too. Public pools, extra sports and trips away from home for camp can leave children’s feet with boo-boos, infections and fungi you don’t want to treat on your own. If your kids feet are hurting, don’t hesitate: schedule an immediate appointment with Dr. Andrew Schneider.
