"Just Ducky" Foot Print Painting

Logan's teacher helped him make this cute little duck at play group last week.

{Ducky by Logan, Age 20 Months}
  • paper
  • paintbrush
  • yellow or brown paint
  • black and orange markers
  • bowl or plate to hold paint
  • newspaper (optional)
  • paper towel, baby wipes, etc. for cleaning up
  1. Use a paintbrush (foam works well) to apply paint to the bottom of child's foot.
  2. Press child's foot onto a piece of paper. (I like to do this by placing the paper on the floor on top of some newspaper and having the child stand on it to make the print.)
  3. Clean child's foot and allow paint to dry.
  4. Make the heel of the foot print into the duck's head by using a black marker to draw an eye and an orange marker to draw a beak.
  5. Display your ducky painting or give it away as a gift. (Foot print art makes a nice Mother's Day present.)
Note: While at play group again today, I noticed the ducks that inspired Logan's teacher and they had been cut out and arranged in a construction paper pond setting. Very cute! (May 18, 2011)
