FootCraft Friday: Footprint Love Keepsake

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.

Dad will love this special home-made gift any time of year!Just because Father’s Day is over doesn’t mean you have to stop showering Dad with love. A colleague of mine shared this awesome Love You Daddy footprint craft with me and I wanted to pass on all the tiny-footed cuteness to you guys. Hope you enjoy!

Supplies

  • Canvas
  • One or more paint colors (depending on number of children)
  • Pre-made letters
  • Glue

Directions

  1. Using letters, spell L_ _ E   Y_U  D A_ _ Y, as shown, on three separate lines. Your child/ren’s hand and footprints will fill in the blanks at a later step. Glue down letters and allow to dry until securely in place.
  2. Paint your child/ren’s hands and feet in one color (if working with more than one child, give each his/her own color.)
  3. Using one handprint as “O,” two connected upside down footprints as “V” and two upright footprints as the “D”s, fill in the blanks to spell “Love You Daddy.”
  4. Once dry, and the names/ages/dates of children. Gift and enjoy!
