Footprint Christmas Tree art for kids

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.
