Little feet and paint is all you need to create this adorable Christmas picture – they’ll love getting messy and seeing their footprints become festive shapes!

You will need

  • Card
  • Green paint
  • Felt tips
  • Bow

How to make

  1. Using a brush, spread a layer of green paint onto your little one’s foot. Then, press their foot gently on the card to create a footprint. Repeat in the same place but at a slight angle, so that the two feet resemble hanging mistletoe. Tip: You might want to quickly wash the paint off their feet to avoid green footprints appearing around the house!
  2. Then, using felt tips, draw a festive bow or sprig of holly to tie your footprint mistletoe together. You could stick a little bow on too.
  3. Voila! Hang with pride as a festive decoration, or fold in half to make an adorable Christmas greeting card.

There are lots of festive designs you can make from your baby’s footprints – here’s a few more ideas:

  • Try adding antlers, eyes and a red nose to make a reindeer
  • Draw a star on top of a single footprint and add twinkly lights and baubles to make a Christmas tree
  • Add eyes, a beak and flippers for a penguin
