Footcraft Friday: Mess Free Zebra Craft


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 best part of this Zebra footprint craft is that it's practically mess-free!Turning your child’s footprints into animals never gets old (at least not for a Houston kids’ podiatrist like me) but it can sometimes get messy…which is why I love this Zebra craft from Cindy DeRosier’s My Creative Life. Instead of requiring paint dips and major clean up, you simply trace your child shoe print, cut out the shape and continue. Hope you enjoy!


  • White card stock
  • Background paper in color of choice
  • Black sharpie
  • Black yarn
  • Glue or tape
  • Googly eyes


  1. Trace your child’s left shoe on white cardstock, then cut out a neck and two rounded ears.
  2. Use a sharpie to add black stripes, eyes, and a nose.
  3. Prepare to make the mane: take the black yarn and loop it back and forth, then cut through the loops to make a whole bunch of pieces that are all the same size.
  4. Turn the neck piece over and add a strip of adhesive, then press the mane pieces in place. Add adhesive between the ears and add the rest of the mane there.
  5. Glue each piece to a background paper and add googly eyes or draw the eyes in with black sharpie. You are done!
