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.
Felt footprints keepsake
This is a fun activity that requires only two materials - felt and a picture frame.
Choose the color of felt you would like to use for each family member. Here are a few options:
- grownups in one color, kids in another
- girls in one color, boys in another
- each family member in a different color
1. Trace one foot of each family member onto cardboard.
Since kids can be a bit wiggly, it's 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.
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!
