Night Before Christmas Mouse Footprint Craft

Night Before Christmas Mouse Footprint Craft

It's not long now until the Night Before Christmas. How has the Christmas shopping gone for you this year? I always promise myself to not leave anything till the last minute, but that always happens. I have to say, I've found being in the hustle and bustle today rather pleasant. That could be because I ventures out alone while Daddy had the children. I actually can't recall the last time I was out alone.

I adore hand and footprint crafts and we share them all the time on Learning and Exploring Through Play, lets take a look at a selection of my favourites:

Penguin Foot Print Craft    Salt Dough Hand print Keepsake    Wood slice Hand Print Snowmen

I was over the moon when Louise Warren from Birmingham, UK - got in touch and shared an adorable Foot Print Craft she had made with her daughter last year after being inspired by this idea over on Pinterest:

To create your own adorable 'Twas the Night Before Christmas Craft you will need:
Grey Paint
Pink Paint
Paint Brushes
Download our FREE PRINTABLE (for cute borders at the bottom of the page. 3 designs to choose from)

If you have the option, try and print the design out on card. Once the soggy paint is printed onto the paper it could make it crimp. Card is much firmer, so this won't happen. Once you have the template border printed out, it's time to get hold of the super cute little feet to print.

My daughter is a huge fan of painting her hands and feet and giggles profusely. Here she is giggling when we made the Snowmen Foot Prints recently:

Cover the feet completely with grey paint. In the guest post we had recently - Penguin Foot Prints, it was advised to continue printing feet rather than reapplying paint. The third print is a lot more defined as the thicker glubs of paint that are unavoidable have flattened down so a more equal print is produced.

Add your features to the 'mouse'. Use a finger print to create the ears. A swish from a paint brush to add the tail. Use a black felt or a sharpie pen to add the facial features. Have children decorate their designs by adding other crafty bits.

Remember to always add names and dates to designs like this. It's always lovely to look back and recall the year the prints were made. I would like to say a great big thank you to Louise Warren for sharing her adorable Foot Print Craft with us!
