Handprint & Footprint Artwork

O and I painted canvases to make art using her and Ema's handprints and footprints. 1st we painted the canvases.

O pressed her hands onto her canvas to make handprints. Then we pressed Ema's feet onto her canvas to make footprints. I thought that Ema would be a little upset about this especially since we were interrupting her nap, but she didn't seem to mind at all :) Maybe she's already getting used to having painted feet!

Here are our finished canvases. Ema's footprints and handprints are very hard to see, so we may make another one using a darker background color. I'm sure we can find a grandparent to give this canvas a good home :)


  1. Those are really neat. I'm probably showing my lack of art smarts here, but what kind of paint did you use?

  2. Thanks! We used acrylic craft paint :)

  3. so sweet :) I tried to make a tee shirt for my baby's great grandparents and he just squeezed the fabric with his painted little hand and made a mess haha. Maybe I should do a nice canvas for them!!

  4. I love hand and feet prints of little ones. Check out our father's day gift on my blog. Do it soon before their feet get too big!
