Footprint Christmas Tree Art
My toddler is too young to paint his own foot so the elder brother helped him with it. Make sure to have a damp cloth nearby so you can wipe the paint off your little kid’s foot or you’ll have a lot of mess to clean up later.
I helped to stamp his painted foot on a piece of paper and wipe clean his foot.
The elder brother proceeded to paint the other foot.
And I helped to stamp it next to the previous footprint.
The elder brother completed the artwork by painting a star at the top and some dots as the Christmas tree ornaments while the little boy played with the paintbrush.
