Father's Day Craft for Kids Supplies

Supplies needed for this easy Father’s Day craft for kids.

  • Construction paper in your choice of color. Light colors are best.
  • Finger paints. You will need one color for each child.
  • Paint brush
  • 10 by 12 Picture Frame
  • Marker

You are going to need to clue dad in a little bit when making this craft for kids, as you will either need his foot or his shoe.

  1. Apply paint to the bottom of either dad’s foot or shoe.
  2. Press on your paper and hold to leave an imprint.
  3. Allow this print to dry for one hour, then repeat with the oldest child, using a different color.
  4. You are going to make the next footprint directly on top of the adult print. Allow to dry.
  5. Repeat using a different color, on the next oldest child. Allow to dry.
  6. Repeat these steps until you have worked your way down to the youngest child.
  7. Be sure you are allowing plenty of dry time in between and pressing each print firmly on top of the other.

When you are finished, the print of each child will have been made on dad’s print. You can then take your marker and date this piece of artwork. You may also title it, “We Want to Follow in Daddy’s Footsteps” or “We are Following in Daddy’s Footsteps.” Or, you can create your own saying that accentuates the theme of this project!

Once everything is totally dry and complete, press between a picture frame. You can always find one at your local dollar store or thrift store. You may even have a spare one around the house. This is a nice way to finish the project and protect it from any damage.

The finished product is so precious, and sure to freeze your little ones in time for a moment. This is a beautiful keepsake that would even make a nice gift for a Godfather or Grandfather!

Kids will enjoy the tickle of the paint on their feet and creating something special for dad. You will enjoy that it is budget friendly and captures their little prints on paper forever! So this Father’s Day, make a Following in Daddy’s Footsteps craft for kids print and give a unique gift he is sure to enjoy. Looking for other Father’s day crafts for kids ideas?

    This is really cute and so easy! I’d love to try it on a Canvas as well, or maybe on a piece of wood to keep the gift really “masculine.” Thanks for the idea!
