Twas The Night Before Christmas kids Foot Print Canvas
Every Christmas Eve it was a tradition in my house that our uncle would read us Twas The Night Before Christmas. It was always such a great time. Our uncle would put so much love in reading us that store. He would use different voices for different parts of the story. Now that we are older and have kids on our own my brother has taken the story telling job into his hands. My daughter was so amazed the way he was able to bring the story to life just like our uncle used to. This year I wanted to capture our love of that store in a canvas with the help of my little guys foot.
- Red, Green, Gray, Black and Pink Paint
- Paint Brushes
- Paint Pen
- Baby Wipes
Paint the bottom of your babies foot gray. Place the foot print upside down on the right hand side of the canvas. Using the baby wipes clean your babies foot. If you mess up on the foot print quickly wipe it off using the baby wipes. Using the gray paint draw on the mouses tail and ears. Now take the pink and paint the inner ears and a little nose. Use the black paint and add come highlights to the mouse. Add the mouses eyes, mouth and whiskers. Using your paint pen write this on there (Twas the night before Christmas. when all through the house not a creature was stiring not even a … ) The final part is to add on the tree limbs. Start by paint branch with the green than add the needles by dragging the brush from the limb out. Keep repeating until the branch looks full. Add some berries with the red paint.

Comments & Reviews
How do you preserve the canvas? Is there a sealant you spray on it when finished and would that make the sharpie run? Very cute activity.
I’ve had this for quite a few years now and I never sprayed it with anything and hasn’t cracked or peeled or anything like that.
