Makes a great present for the Grandparents or a gift for Mothers or Fathers Day! Finish with straight simple lines for the stem and add an extra few strokes under the foot imprint.

Butterfly Baby Feet Painting

12969_10152542022695230_438238338_nOn a pallet place purple on bottom and blue on top and mix together where they meet. This should be finger paint that is edible. The area of paint on pallet (which can just be cardboard) should be slightly larger than your child’s foot. Place your child’s foot into the paint and press firmly onto canvas. Make the top of the antennae with the big toes. Let dry. When dry with black paint and thin brush or with large sharpie markers and make body, face and antennae. You can make a few of these at one time that make excellent gifts for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day as well as Grandparents. Change out colors to make an interesting butterflies.

Happy Fathers Day Childs Handprint Tree

971810_641736929189732_1109393344_nCreate by computer using clip art or paint by hand a tree on white paper. Paint your child’s hands with poster paint or watercolor paint from a tube. Use different colors and variations of colors that appear on a tree. (Blues, greens aqua, yellows) You can also use a stamp pad but the colors won’t be as pronounced. Make imprints overlapping one another. In this picture we used one hand print from each child in the family. We used clip art and printed this out on thick “cardboard/card stock” white paper. We also printed it out with Happy Father’s Day – and it would look nice if you fathomed a little wording such as a poem at the bottom. Give enough time to dry and frame your artwork. It is a little something special that can be hung in your home or used in his office.

To A Father – Walk With Me, Daddy


424582_642467572450001_711189573_nThis poem has been circulating for sometime now around the internet. Retype and print onto a white card stock from your desk top publishing system. Use multicolored ink pads to put impressions of baby’s feet to make a background. I found that paint won’t work as well for a project like this as it tends to be too dark unless you put the foot prints off to each side. Use poster paints or watercolor straight from the tube and rinse feet well. Frame after in dries thoroughly and Dad will enjoy it in a special place in the home or on his desk in his office.
