Footcraft Friday: Little Ray of Sunshine


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 sun would make great nursery artIt’s one thing to talk about our kids as the lights of our lives, but it’s another to say it with crafts. This week, I’m sharing a foot craft project, found on Preschool Activities, that gives you a great way to show your kids how much they matter (and the finished product would make great wall art for a child’s room!)

Foot Print Sun Craft


  • White Canvas
  • Yellow Paint
  • Black Sharpie
  • Plate
  • Paint Brush


  1. Starting at the bottom left hand corner of your canvas, use a paintbrush to paint the body of the sun to appear as though it were setting off the page. Let dry.
  2. Next, paint your little one’s right foot and have him or her make prints all along the round edge of the sun. These will be the rays.
  3. If desired, write a sweet saying in the white space on the top right. As pictured, we tried “You Are My Sunshine.” If working with more than one child, consider writing each little one’s name on their footprint ray.
  4. Frame if desired or let hang as is.

Kids need to play outside in the sun in order to cut loose and explore their world. If their feet hurt, they can’t do their important work of playing. If you are concerned about discomfort in your child’s feet, schedule an appointment with Dr. Andrew Schneider immediately! Foot pain is NOT a normal part of growing up, so your kids shouldn’t have to deal with it.
