Frankenstein’s Monster Footprint Craft

Frankenstein's Monster Footprint Craft

My kiddos and I love making crafts together for the holidays, especially for Halloween. As a fun and non-scary way to prepare for the upcoming holiday, I helped my daughter and son make Frankenstein’s monster footprint crafts. My kids love playing in the paint and then the sink, and I love locking a small piece of my babies in time.


  • Blank paper
  • Green, black, and white nontoxic paint
  • Scrap cardboard
  • Cotton balls
  • Paintbrush


  1. Pour a small amount of green and black paint on the scrap cardboard.
  2. Use cotton balls to spread green paint on the bottom of your child’s foot and black paint on your child’s toes.
  3. Press the green and black footprint onto the sheet of paper with the toes pointing up.
  4. Repeat to create as many monsters as desired.
  5. Wash the paint off your child’s foot.
  6. Pour a small amount of white paint on the scrap cardboard.
  7. Press two white fingerprints onto each green footprint near the black toes.
  8. Wash the paint off your child’s finger.
  9. Use a paintbrush to paint black pupils, a mouth, and neck bolts on each monster.
