Spooky footprint ghosts!

Yesterday, I decided to make some spooky footprint ghosts with my two year old nephew. It is a super simple and cute activity for very little ones!

I love making footprints with the kids as they are so lovely to keep and to look back on as they grow. There are some beautiful poems which you can add to footprint pictures and crafts, especially if you are making them as gifts for family or friends. The poem below is one of my favourites –

Two little feet with ten tiny toes,

Isn’t it strange how quickly time goes?

Footprints so small but this will not last,

I change each day, I grow so fast,

These two little footprints will help you recall,

How little I was when my feet were this small!

To make your spooky ghost footprints you will need – black card, white paint, paintbrush and felt tip pen.

Begin, by painting your foot in white paint. (My nephew loves this part as he finds it super tickly! Lots of giggles here)!

Next, print the foot down onto black card. Once they are dry, draw on the ghosts eyes and mouth! IMG_2615 A super simple print activity and a nice way for the very little ones to get involved with Halloween! These would also look lovely cut out and placed around the home to decorate!

Happy printing!
