Footprint Ghost

I honestly cannot figure out where I first saw this adorable idea, but loved it so much, I think we have a new Halloween tradition…footprint ghosts! What a fun way to record your child’s foot size each year, or make super cute cards to mail to grandparents.P1020315
Just cover your child’s foot in white paint and press it down on black construction paper. My boys loved this and kept begging me to paint their feet more :).
After the paint is dry, use black paint or a marker to draw eyes and a mouth. You can hang this up or cut it out to make a card. Like I said, adorable, right?!P1020316
I’ll be linking up to Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays, Anything Related, Works For Me Wednesday, Penny Pinching Party, Hoo’s Got Talent, Kids Get Crafty, What Are Little Boys Made Of? ,and Preschool Corner Friday.
