A collection of fun activities for little hands!

Penguin Foot Art

I’ll admit it, I’m addicted to hand and footprint art projects!  I love them, they are adorable and such a cute way to keep track of how your little one is growing.  This one is for my daughter who has loved penguins since she was small (her imaginary friend was even a penguin named Pengwee).  It’s a simple project, cute to hang on the fridge for the winter and then a treasure to tuck away in a safe spot to look back on how tiny their feet once were!  All you need is

Black, white and orange washable paint

Paint brushes

Construction paper

A bucket of warm, soapy water

A towel

Have your little one take off their shoe and then help them paint their toes orange, outside edge, heel and ball of their foot black and their arch white.  Carefully let them step onto the construction paper, pushing down gently and then help them pull their foot straight up for the best result.  The messy foot goes right into the warm, soapy water for a quick wash and then to the towel to dry and you are almost done!  We then used construction paper to make eyes and a beak for our penguin and stuck it to the still wet paint.  There he is, your very own foot penguin!  Have fun!
