    I always loved making footprint crafts with my kids when they were little. So cute 🙂

  • Michele

    That is really cute. Amazing what you can make out of footprints and finger prints. I’m sure all the kids will love doing it as well!

    So CUTE!! I like that it’s a craft and a memorial of their tiny feet as well =)

  • Could this be any cuter? I think not! I love preserving little tootsies and hands like this.

  • Chelley Martinka

    These are adorable! We like to paint their feet in stripes then press them into the paper!
