Footcraft Friday: Grandparents Gifts

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.

Use this template to get you started on your easy footprint craft gift projectIt’s Grandparents Day this Sunday and I can think of no better way to mark the occasion than with a gift that captures a print of the tiny little feet we all love to admire.

I found a great (and easy!) craft on Instructables.com that would fit the bill perfectly. Share a picture if you try it out!

Heart and Sole Gift

Materials Needed

Paper (I'm a fan of construction paper)
Tempera Paint (you could use Acrylic but Tempera is easier to clean up)
Paint brush
Scissors
Marker

Other Materials that can be used

large construction paper
Glue

Markers

Directions

 

  1. Cut a heart shape out of the construction paper.
  2. Paint your child’s foot and have him or her make a print in the center of the heart.
  3. Once the footprint has dried, write the words “I love you with my heart and sole” surrounding the print.
  4. Decorate as desired.
