Remember the other day, when I told you about my non-messy child? Well, I wanted to do another no-mess Thanksgiving art project with him, so I decided on making a footprint turkey puppet. Baby feet are just so cute, and I want to capture his little feet in as many different ways as I possibly can while he’s still little.
I had originally planned on tracing his foot and cutting it out, but I wanted to be able to see his toes, so I decided to suck it up and wrestle him so I could paint his foot to get a “real” footprint on the paper. He wasn’t too happy about it, but look how cute his footprint looks!!
Then I cleaned him up, sat him in his chair, and gave him some paper, paint and a paintbrush. Paintbrushes are a must for this child, if I want him to do any painting. He had lots of fun squishing the paints around and mixing the colors.
When he was done, I let him paint his tray too, which he always likes doing.
I walked away to get something from the kitchen, and when I came back, this is what I found…
My non-messy child painted his tray, his belly, and his HAIR! I was groaning and jumping for joy all at the same time! I was only groaning because he had already taken a bath, but back to the bath he went! I think that was his secret plot all along, because he LOVES bath time. Anyways, here is the finished product. We used dot paint markers for the eyes, my fingerprint for the red thing (what is that called anyway??) and I drew on the beak with marker. I think it turned out super cute, and can’t wait for him to play with it!
