Kid's Craft: Christmas Tree Foot and Hand Print Painting


After a long day of being snowed-in, I needed something different and messy to do with the kiddos. Roll up your sleeves and take off your socks and shoes for this project- because it's gonna be a ticklish kind of mess ;-) Toddlers and preschoolers love to paint with their hands and feet!

Classified: Easy. Takes about 30 minutes or so with each child.

What you need:
  1. Left Foot, right foot
  2. Left hand, right hand
  3. Green, Red, Yellow, White and Brown Tempera Paint
  4. 12x18" Yellow and Blue Construction Paper
  5. Palette
  6. Sponge brush
  7. And something to wipe your kids hands and feet off quickly- I used baby wipes.

What to do:
  1. Paint the bottom of your child's foot (either one) and stamp it 10 times on the piece of 12x18" yellow construction paper so it forms a pyramid. One foot on top- row 2 has two feet stamps- Row 3 has three feet stamps and so on. Make sure to slightly overlap each foot.
  2. Paint hand brown and stamp upside down for tree trunk.
  3. Allow to dry.
  4. Cut out the tree and bark and glue it to the blue sheet of construction paper.
  5. Paint child's hand white and stamp it around the bottom to create snow.
  6. Have your child dip their fingerprints into the red and yellow paint to make ornaments on the tree.
  7. Dry and Hang!
