Footcraft Friday: Rainbow Parrot Craft


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.

This colorful footprint parrot craft would brighten any kids' roomSummer will be here before you know it, so why not get your kids off the couch now (regular exercise is key to preventing childhood obesity and Type 2 Diabetes) and try out this adorable footprint craft that incorporates findings from nature.

Hand and Footprint Parrot (found on The Organised Housewife)


  • Leaves and a branch found on nature walk (or substitute with green and brown construction paper)
  • White construction paper
  • Orange construction paper
  • Multiple paint colors
  • Googly Eyes
  • Glue
  • Paintbrush



  1. Get into nature. Collect a few leaves and a nice sized branch or twig. If nothing fits the bill, you can always use paper instead (as seen in illustration at right.)
  2. Paint your child’s foot and have him or her make a print on the white paper, toes facing down. Clean foot and let the print dry.
  3. Next, divide your child’s hands into three (lower palm, upper palm, fingers) painting each section a different color. Paint one hand and make two overlapping prints, running alongside the arch of the footprint. Let dry
  4. Next, glue on your branch beneath the toes of your footprint, and attach leaves coming off the branch. Cut out beak from orange construction paper and attach. Add in googly eye and you are done!
