They were very excited to give him the presents they had made for him, first up were home made cards/ paintings that they painted with homemade puffy paint
Puffy paint is so simple and so effective, you can't see exactly how good it looks on these photos but it looks fab, makes the paint 3D with a foamy type effect/ This is how we did it:
- 3/4 cup self raising flour
- half a teaspoon of salt
- various food colouring
- warm water
We also made a cute canvas to go in the hallway, above the shoe rack (or should I say Mt. shoe as it currently is)
I wanted to get hubby's shoe print without covering it in paint or giving any clues so we covered it in tin foil and smoothed it down so we had the tread print.
Next we painted the bottom of the shoe in paint and printed it onto the canvas.
Once the first print was dry Little Mr chose the colour he wanted his print to be and we painted his foot and printed his foot within the shoe print.
Repeated with Little Miss' footprint (pink of course) and left to dry.
Finally I took a paint brush and using the 'wrong' end, wrote a fitting sentence, "one day Daddy, we will follow in your shoes".
