Footcraft Friday: Footprint Flowers


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.

The finished project is perfect for spring!Spring is almost here! Looking for a great way to get your children engaged in crafts while also creating a great memento of their perfect little feet? Try this easy project on for size!

Hand and Foot Print Flowers (From Learning as We Grow)


  • Washable Tempura Paints
  • Paint brushes
  • Wipes or a wet hand towel
  • Paper to apply prints onto


1. Choose your colors for the flowers. Place your hand and foot prints on the page as illustrated on the right. Carefully clean off (and dry, to avoid athlete’s foot!) your child’s foot, using regular baby wipes or a wash-rag.


2. Draw in your stems with a paint brush.


3. Paint on leaves and add the name and date to either a stem or on an empty part of the paper.


4. Frame if desired as a keepsake.


This little project is a fairly simple one, but sometimes it can be tough to figure out why your child’s foot is hurting. If your little one is experiencing foot pain of any kind on a regular basis, schedule an appointment for a comprehensive evaluation with Dr. Andrew Schneider.
