As part of our reading week activities, we made our very own “Foot Book” inspired from one of our very favorite Seuss classics. If you’ve read the blog for awhile, you know I’m a sucker for hand & footprint crafts, so making a foot book with our feet was a perfect activity!
-card stock, tempera (washable) paint, paintbrush, marker, stapler and/or glue, and feet!
We used 3 sheets of cardstock, folded in half like a book. It helps to have your wording at least roughly planned out ahead of time so you can figure out how many sheets you need.
Then, I painted big brother’s feet for the first round of pages!
We had to make it in shifts to let the paint dry (it would be faster to have the pages cut, do it all at once, then glue pages back to back).
Daddy, Little Brother, and I all did our footprints too! 🙂
Once all the prints were dry, I stapled the pages together (and added a little glue for good measure). Then, wrote the words about our lovely family feet.
You can see “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish” had some influence on our Family Foot Book too.
I thought I’d spare you pictures of every page, but here are the words to “Our Family Foot Book”:
One foot, Two feet
Red foot, Blue feet
Left foot, Right foot
A foot that is BIG, a foot that is small,
Daddy’s foot is the biggest foot of us all!
Feet. feet. feet.
Our family’s feet are pretty neat!
