Heirloom Child footprint Easter Plate

Inspired by the Easter footprint example on Pinterest, https://www.pinterest.com/pin/44613852531120415/, my family and I visited a paint your own pottery place and tried to replicate the concept.

With the help of my son, I was able to walk him through what we were going to do – and what we were going to make.  He’s 3.5 yrs old now – and has a better understanding what’s involved in the process now.  There for awhile we had to take a break from taking prints – as he didn’t really understand what was going on – now he’s into it!

So it was helpful to have baby wipes on hand and family/friends to help.  I explained that the paint would feel cold and damp, but we are going to make a carrot and bunny out of his footprints and he was very excited.  It took 5 minutes to do both foot prints – and he was very good to be very still when we did them.  A week later when we picked up the plate – we were really happy with the results!
