Ghost Foot Print Instructions

This activity makes for a fun time and a cute keepsake to help remember little toes. Not to mention it is a nice way to say hello to friends and family that love those little toes.

Step 1: Cut the black card in half so you can either make 2 foot prints or you can share with a sibling.

Step 2: Cover the floor with newspaper. Pick one of your child’s feet and cover the bottom of it with white paint. Once the bottom of the foot is covered have him or her step down on one side of the folded black paper. The heal of your child’s footprint is the “head” of the ghost and the toes are the flowing bottom of the ghost, so the heal of the foot should be near the folded portion of the card and the toes should be near the bottom of the card. Make sure that keep that in mind when having them step on the card.

**Note my girls (4 year old and 6 year old) loved painting their own feet.

Step 3: Wash feet off and let the ghosts dry a bit. Once the white paint is dry add eyes and a mouth using a black marker or black paint.

Step 4: Write boo out of the ghosts mouth with white paint.

What you’ll need:

  • A4 piece of black card
  • White paint from the paint palette
  • Paint brush
