Footcraft Friday: Starfish

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.

This footprint starfish craft is an adorable way to start the summer. Are you guys dreaming of summer vacation yet? I know am, especially with all this colder-than-usual weather we've been having recently. Here's something to get you out of your mid-winter blues: a Starfish footprint craft project from Easy Peasy and Fun.

Supplies

  • Blue paper
  • Orange paint
  • Black marker

Directions

  1. Paint one or both of your child’s feet orange.  Press it down on the paper.
  2. Rinse and repeat 4 more times in circular “pattern” with toes pointing to the middle of the circle.
  3. With permanent marker draw in the eyes and mouth and any other details you desire.
  4. If the shape didn’t come out just as cute as you’d like (sometimes the color doesn’t spread evenly or there are blank spaces from the footprint) you can either “correct” that with a paintbrush or trace the starfish shape.
