Thanks to Macaroni Kid Robinson for sharing this cute craft!
We have a ton of step stools in my house because my kids are just a tad shy of reaching all that they need. Truth be told, most of mine are old and plastic and they have seen better days for sure! I was so excited to run across this idea that combines their awesome little tootsies and an item we will use every day!
Wooden Step Stool: I picked this one up at a craft store but garage sale season is right around the corner and you may be able to spot one that needs some TLC for a great price.
Paint- Any color you like! I chose blue because it matches my bathroom but I think bright colors would be great too.
Kid safe paint- I used acrylic paint for the actual foot print part.
Step 1: Primer- Especially if you bought the stool new, primer is a must! Our stool soaked up 2 coats. The kids even got in on this action! They loved it! However, this paint does not come off easily and they still have some remnants on them after a bath so beware!
Step 2: Final Paint- We left the kids out of this step because we didn’t want them to end up looking like Smurfs and wanted them to have a nice smooth surface to put their prints on.
Step 3: Paint their feet- We chose an acrylic paint because it’s much easier to wash off! We painted their feet with a brush because this is MUCH easier than having them dip their feet and much less messy. We actually did a test print on paper first to make sure it looked perfect and found we put too much paint on so we scraped some off and it was perfect!
Step 4: Add any details or writing you like!
