Baby Craft- Footprint Flower Vase Painting

Springtime is in the air and my 10 month old is very curious about the world around him! To help brighten up our day and my decor, he made flower painting of his own using his footprints. As I painted his feet, I showed him what colors we were using: red, yellow and orange (warm colors) to make his flower prints. He laughed tremendously as I printed his pudgy feet over and over again in a bouquet fashion.

Classified: Easy enough for a baby to do! Well, with your help!

What you need:
  • Paints: red, yellow, orange and green
  • White and {your choice of color} paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Sponge brush
  • Black marker
  • Baby wipes, cloth or whatever you need to clean your babies feet.

What to do:
  1. Paint the bottom of your babies feet with paint and stamp onto the white paper. Do not wait for colors to dry in between- allow the colors to bleed and blend. I painted his toes and stamped them separately to make it look as though there are small buds of flowers in the mix as well.
  2. Allow to dry.
  3. When dry, paint in a stem and leaves.
  4. Dry and cut out.
  5. Draw a simple vase using {your choice of color} construction paper and cut out.
  6. Glue the bouquet to the vase and draw in details.
  7. Give to mom as a Mother's Day gift or for the theme "April Showers Bring May Flowers".
