Create a Footprint Mural

What you need:

  • Old sheet 
  • Washable paint

What to do:

 

1. Lay an old sheet out on the grass or sidewalk. Pour paint into a foil baking tin. 

2. Help your toddler step into the paint barefoot and walk across the sheet. Talk about how the paint feels on her feet and what color it is.

3. Invite other family members to step in the paint and add their footprints to the mural.

4. After it has dried, point out which footprints belong to which family member. Can your child identify her own prints? Which ones are big? Which are little?
