Footcraft Friday: How Does Your Garden Grow?


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.

You can't help but smile when you see the sweet hand and footprint flowersOnce the flood waters recede, it will be time to start reclaiming land and re-planting our gardens. Until we are able to get to that stage, I’d like to share a kids footcraft project from The Thrifty Couple that can help you smile a lit bit and envision a sunny, water-free garden. Hope you can all enjoy!

Hand and Footprint Flowers


All you need for this easy craft is paint, paper and your little one—an easy project to cheer up friends who’ve been displaced from their homes or classrooms.


  1. Paint hands with one or two colors of paint.
  2. Place both palms down on paper, with bottoms of palms touching and fingers spread.
  3. Paint stem coming from palms to the bottom of the page.
  4. Paint feet green.
  5. Place foot prints on either side of stem, angled out like leaves.
  6. Add in grass, sunshine, names, ages—any decorative detail you like. Let dry and enjoy!
In times of trouble, it is easy to overlook minor aches and pains, but your child’s foot pain should never be ignored. If your son or daughter is complaining of discomfort in their feet, toes or ankles, schedule an appointment with Dr. Andrew Schneider as soon as you can.
