Spring Handprint & Footprint Art Roundup
If you have been around A Step in the Journey long, you may have noticed my love for hand print and footprint art with my littles. I love capturing their size and ever changing features at every age and hand and footprint art is a great way to do that. Plus it adds all kinds of fun to our playroom bulletin board!
My kids love to create, but I’ve admitted before, it can sometimes be a little stressful. Here are my go-to painting tips with toddlers: 1. Cover your table/craft space with butcher paper, newspaper, or cling wrap 2. Let the kids wear dad’s old tshirts to protect their clothes (or we use smocks I found at IKEA) 3. Use washable paints 4. Sponge brushes work best 5. When working with real little ones stick to footprints (and put them in the high chair to keep them from grabbing their painted feet) 6. Keep wipes handy to wash off their hands 7. Embrace the chaos!
Here are a few works of art we have done in hopes of Spring that is right around the corner and a few of my favorites from bloggers around the web!
