4.0 based on 1 rating

What You Need:

  • Black construction paper
  • White and orange tempera paint
  • Paper Plate
  • Pencil
  • Paintbrush
  • Newspaper
  • Wet cloth

What You Do:

  1. Have your child help you lay out newspaper on the floor and place the black construction paper in the center of the paper.
  2. Pour some white tempera paint into a paper plate.
  3. Ask your child to point out his left foot.
  4. Help your child paint the bottom of one foot, covering the entire foot, as well as the toes.
  5. Ask him to do a test print on the newspaper. If the consistency of the print looks good, have him press his foot down in the bottom left side of the construction paper. Help him press his toes down so he gets a good print of the entire foot.
  6. Repeat this process with the right foot, printing it at the top right corner of the paper.
  7. Allow the prints to dry, while he wipes his feet off with the wet cloth.
  8. Help him write out the following infamous phrase: "Trick or treat! Smell my feet! Give me something good to eat!" so it fits in between his footprints.
  9. Have him trace the letters using white paint. Let dry.
  10. Encourage him to apply orange paint directly over the white paint to add a vibrant touch. Allow the print a little time to dry before displaying it.
