Kids footprint art

I love how little my kids' feet are, and everything else... oh how I wish they would just stay little! So to preserve the cuteness of thier feet now I decided to do some footprint art with them...

I bought a 3-pack of 5x7 canvases and had the boys pick out what color they wanted (out of a smaller selection that I chose so they would go with the rest of our decor), and then the fun began.



I had the two big boys step onto a paper plate covered in each of thier designated colors and then helped them step down onto the canvas to create thier one of a kind footprint... the baby's foot I painted with a foam brush, while he was sleeping, and then pressed it onto a canvas...



It was not only fun for all of us but it is something that I will treasure forever and a way to remember years from now, just how small they each used to be!
