We went outside to make this Halloween footprint craft because this activity can get messy since your little one will have paint on their feet to make the footprints.

Step 1

Paint the bottom of your little ones foot with white paint. Make sure you get the whole foot covered; toes, heel, etc…

Step 2

After your child’s foot is fully painted, stamp their footprints on the paper.

The toes are going to be the bottom of the ghosts and your little ones heel will be the top – just keep this in mind for the placement of their footprints on your paper.

Step 3

Let the footprints dry.

Step 4

When they are dry, with your child’s toes facing the bottom of the paper, you and your kids can make eyes for the ghosts.

That’s it! You are all done with adorable footprint ghosts! This is by far one of my favorite Halloween crafts, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
