One holiday tradition we’ve had since AG was born is making Christmas footprint art. It’s something I look forward to doing each year.
While I know I can’t freeze time, it’s a way to press the pause button for a moment. Those itty bitty newborn toes in 2012 & 2014 will never be that small again, but I’ll always have these pieces of art to cherish and remember those sweet newborn days.
These ornaments, canvases and frames we’ve made over the past years are one of my favorite Christmas decorations to unpack and display. One year, there will be an entire wall filled with these special prints.
In the past three years, we’ve done mistletoes, a christmas tree, reindeers and snowmen. I haven’t decided on what we’re going to make this year yet. It’s AG’s Advent activity tomorrow, so I better get to planning. Here are some of our past creations along with more ideas to inspire you.
I hope this will inspire you to create a keepsake with your littles this holiday season.
Mistletoes- AG was just three months old.
Footprint Tree- This was done at a pottery store and now hangs on our tree.
Reindeer Footprint Art- My first year with two littles.
