How to Create a Family Keepsake with Felt Foot Cut Outs

Family keepsakes help us preserve memories of special times or events enjoyed together over the years. Like handprints, footprints are fun to compare at different stages as children grow. Making this keepsake with felt feet is a fun activity in which the whole family can participate.

Note: This activity could also be done in an early learning classroom, with footprints displayed on a felt board!

This is a fun activity that requires few materials. 

Before you begin the activity, choose the colors of felt you would like to use. There are lots of options:

  • grownups in one color, kids in another
  • girls in one color, boys in another
  • each family member in a different color

Instructions for felt feet activity

1. Trace one foot of each family member onto cardboard.

Since kids can be a bit wiggly, it will be easier to make a cardboard template of each foot first.

2. Cut out the templates.

3. Trace the patterns onto pieces of felt.

Feet can be overlapped in an abstract design or laid out in order by size.

5. Frame the picture!

 

This simple keepsake will preserve memories of kids and other family members at certain stages of life. 

Everyone in the family can be involved in the process, and the result is perfect for decorating a kid's bedroom or playroom!
