This is such a sweet special idea – and children ALWAYS love to paint their feet… well at least my two do!!
These flowers require some strategic thinking on your part, in the sense of getting your child to stand with ‘ballet feet’ is not that easy… just saying…
I painted their feet sitting on a chair and then picked them up and put one foot down – the other foot dangling mid air – full of paint…
And then when we had the one foot down I carefully placed the other foot into position – because all those ballet lessons are really paying off……….
I must say I loved this! It was fun!
I used A3 paper – so there was lots of space for the stem and leaves and non toxic poster paint to paint the feet with.
I painted on the leaves and stem when my babies were fast asleep (because they are 3 and 1) but a slightly older child would have a lot of fun finishing their own feet flowers off once dry…
And then we went mad – and painted all different colors and made an entire garden!!
I love footprints!!
These make the best gifts and really special paintings or cards for Mother’s Day!
