    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!

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

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