Family keepsakes help us preserve memories of special times or events enjoyed together over the years. Like hand prints, 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.

This activity can be done at home as family project or in an early learning classroom with preschoolers displaying footprints 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

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.

4. Place the felt cut outs on a felt background.

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

5. Frame the picture!
