Ghost Footprints

This is a great keepsake and fun craft that involves your kids.

What you need:

  • 8x10 or 4x6 Canvas
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • White Acrylic Paint
  • White Glitter (Optional)
  • Googly Eyes
  • Your Kids Feet or Hands

How To Make It: 
  • Paint canvas black with foam brush and allow to dry.

  • Paint the bottom of your kids hands or feet with white acrylic paint. Then place painted hands or feet on black canvas to apply print.
  • Sprinkle with glitter while white paint is still wet. 
  • Flip canvas over so print resembles ghost, and once dry, glue on googly eyes. 
  • Using a paint brush or paint pen write their names and year on the canvas.
  • If you used the glitter, we recommend using a spray acrylic sealer so the glitter doesn't get everywhere.
