Step by Step Tutorial
Let the kids paint their foot white – you can have them dip the foot into the paint or have them cover the surface of their foot with a brush (it might tickle).
Have them press down their feet onto the black cardstock to leave a white footprint.
Have them cut out the footprint.
Adhere two wiggle eyes on the footprint.
Turn over the footprint and with some tape, secure the yarn.
Start wrapping the yarn around the footprint, covering the whole footprint but loosely enough that the footprint is still visible.
