Footcraft Friday: Lobster Love

How cute is this hand and footprint lobster craft? Do you remember that episode of Friends where Phoebe says Ross is Rachel’s lobster (if you don’t, check out the full series on Netflix. So worth it.) For those who don’t yet have time to binge-watch, I’ll give you a quick explanation: lobsters mate for life, an unusual display of commitment within the animal kingdom.

You know who else we have a lifetime commitment with? Our kids! But the thing is, their little feet only stay little for so long…and then you blink and they’re suddenly grown-ups. Want a cute project to preserve the memory of their precious foot prints? Try this adorable project from Crafty Crafted.
