Halloween Footprints


We haven’t done any Halloween crafts yet this year…I know…bad Mommy.  Today Cheyenne came up to me and asked to do a Halloween craft.  So I went to my craft bible, Pinterest, and looked through my Halloween Board to find a fun craft to do.  Since I haven’t been to the dollar store or craft store lately, a lot of the crafts I looked at, we didn’t have all the supplies for.  But I did find one that only needed black construction paper and white paint and…voila!  Halloween Ghost Footprints!

Cheyenne had a blast doing this, even though I did most of it.  I started out by painting one foot white and she stepped on the black paper, then we did her other foot.  After that, I got a dab of black paint and she used her pinky finger to make eyes on her ghosts.   Then I got a black marker and drew a little circle for the mouth on each ghost.

I soon discovered that my white paint pen was dried out, so I substituted white chalk to write Happy Halloween 2012.

Since I was so busy painting feet and making sure they didn’t slip when she did the footprint, I didn’t get any pictures of the process, but here’s her completed Halloween Ghost Footprints!!  It was a fun craft and will be one that will be kept as a memento as well.

If you are running short on supplies, this is an easy one that doesn’t require a lot of supplies and will be a keepsake as well!!  Let me know what you think and give it a shot!!
