Footcraft Friday: Extra Festive Rudolph Craft


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 could even say this shiny-nosed reindeer craft glows! In the past, I’ve taught you how to turn your child’s footprint into a precious reindeer-themed Christmas card, but, seeing as how everyone’s favorite reindeer is Rudolph, I just couldn’t resist sharing this special craft from Happy Hooligans, made extra festive by the red pom-pom nose on the arch of those precious little feet!

Footprint Reindeer Christmas Cards


  • card stock or construction paper
  • brown paint
  • red pom-pom (or red paint)
  • brown marker
  • googly eyes
  • glue
  • styrofoam tray (or something to hold the pour the brown paint into)


1. To start, squirt some brown paint on to a styrofoam produce tray.  Spread the paint around the tray with a paintbrush, and then have your little crafter press his or her foot into it.

2. Next, press the painted foot on to a folded piece of white card stock to make the footprint Rudolph. Let the footprint dry while you wash off all the paint.

3. Next, use a paintbrush to put a bit of glue on the googly eyes and pom-pom nose.

4. Don't have pom-pons? Don't worry! Your child can dip his or her thumb into some red paint and press that on for the nose. Then you’ll have a thumbprint-footprint card!

5. Finish by adding some antlers with a brown Sharpie.
