Baby Handprint Footprint Crafts
Baby handprint footprint crafts fall into two categories. The first is the crafts that you do with your baby or toddler for fun that uses their own handprints and footprints. These usually make fantastic gifts for grandparents!
The second is the crafts you do using your baby handprint footprints as keepsakes. Here we will show you different ideas such as using a baby handprint kit to capture your baby's tiny prints for ever.
These are my personal favourite ideas for fun crafts that use your baby handprint footprint. They make wonderful gifts and your toddler will enjoy playing with the dough and paint too.
Baby Handprint/Footprint Crafts for Fun
Baby Handprint Poem
Finger Painting - Baby Handprint PictureI started finger painting with my son Jamie when he was about 20 months. Now at two years old he loves nothing more than to be stripped down to his nappy and given the finger paints and a big piece of paper to play with. The first few times I needed to help him finger paint to ensure the paint went on the paper and not in his mouth, but now I just sit with him while he explores with the paints and colours by himself.
Finger paints are bright and thick so they feel great to have all over your hands and give instant results. I have bought some paints that I can squeeze right onto his hands and his first instinct is to make a handprint on the paper. He also loves to walk all over the paper making footprints.
These tactile experiences are such important ones for our toddlers to have and can also be a great way to introduce the names of the colours and lots of other fabulous new words like 'squishy', 'slimy', 'round and round' and 'wiggly'.
Baby Handprint Footprint Keepsakes
Ceramic Painting KeepsakesI'm sure once you see your baby's tiny hand and foot for the first time you will be just like I was and want to preserve it for life.
We went to the Ceramic Cafe in Dubai where we live and had a totally enjoyable family craft morning together. The cafe has all sorts of items you can choose to paint, all while you have your coffee!
We chose a cute pair of flip flops (I call jandles) and once Jamie was asleep we put him in the front pack and were able to paint his feet and press them onto the flip flops. We used paint to write his name and his birthday on each one.
We also made a plate each for his grandmothers and gave it to them from Jamie for their Christmas present. They of course totally loved them and we all treasure this tiny ceramic footprints.
