Footprint Valentines

Connor is only 5 months old, but I'm already making him do crafts! We did something similar for Halloween and everyone loved it, so I figured we'd do one for his first Valentine's Day too.

Like we did last time, painting projects seem to work best in the bathroom and right by the bathtub. I sat him in his little tub on the bathroom counter and he giggled. My craftiness is rubbing off on him!
I used some fingerpaint and a foam brush to apply it to his feet.

It worked best to leave him sitting in the tub and bring the paper up to his foot to stamp it.

On the back side, I printed out a little poem that I found online. (Sorry, I forgot to write down the source, so if it's yours, let me know)
S.W.A.K. (Sealed with a kiss) and mailed out to some friends and family for the holiday!
