Handprint and footprint art is a fun and easy way to capture those little prints our children make year to year. We already tried the classic bunny handprint art this year. So what was next? The classic footprint chicks! I did the bunny handprint art with my 2 older boys and left the cute little footprint chicks for baby brother. Now I have lasting memories of their little prints to hold onto in these works of art.

What we used:
Crayola 4ct Washable Fingerpaints Primary (Bold, primary colors in red, blue, yellow, and green)
Sharpie Ultra-Fine-Point Permanent Markers, 24-Pack Colored Markers (32893)
Neenah Premium Cardstock, 96 Brightness, 65 lb, Letter, Bright White, 250 Sheets per Pack (91904)
What we did:
To try and make this project as easy as possible I gathered all the supplies I would need before getting baby brother. Having wipes close by is helpful too.
I had my husband hold baby brother for me. I painted his foot with yellow paint. I then took his little foot and pressed it down on the white paper. I repeated this 2 more times leaving me with 3 little footprints on the cardstock. I left the paper to dry a few hours. When I came back I took the sharpies and added the grass and flowers. I also added the eyes, beak, and wings to the chicks.
I just love that there are 3 chicks that goes well with me having 3 sons. So I call this masterpiece “3 brother chicks out for a walk”, lol. I hope you and the kids can enjoy this as much as we did. We now have fun springtime art to hang on the art wall.
