Painted Footprints in the Sand Keepsake

It’s hard to believe but we have been living in Florida for SIX months now! It sounds clique but it really is going by so fast…

To mark the special occasion and start my “collection” of Florida decor for our ever-growing military memory wall in the house, recently I made this Footprints in the Sand Keepsake with my son and I just had to share the idea with you all!!!

It’s the perfect way to celebrate “beach” life {wherever you live!} and I hope you are inspired to make one with your child today!

Happy crafting my friends! If you do decide to recreate this footprint beach canvas idea, come share a picture {or two} with us on our Facebook page! #gluedtomycrafts

Footprints in the Sand - Keepsake Idea

* Large Blank Canvas – any size you want!
* Blue Craft Paint
* Brown Craft Paint
* Ivory Craft Paint
* Foam Paint Brushes
* Small Paper Plate
* Baby Wipes
* Large Scrapbook Stickers

* First you want to squirt ALL your colors of craft paints on the small paper plate.
* Go ahead and start painting the base of your beach scene on the canvas. Paint some sand, the water, sun etc.
* When done, set aside the painted canvas to let it dry completely.
* Once you are ready for the footprints, squirt some “ivory” colored paint on a paper plate.
* One by one, paint the bottom of your child’s foot completely and press it on the canvas where you like.
* Remove excess paint off their feet with the baby wipes and a quick trip to the tub.
* To finish off the Footprints in the Sand Canvas – add other embellishments you see fit {like drawing in more sand/water/a palm tree} and add scrapbook letter stickers to really tie it all together. I did “Tampa 2017” since that is currently where we live and the year but you are more than welcome to do whatever you like!
* Then display proudly for ALL to see!

DIY Plaster Footprints

Summer is my family’s favourite time of year – we’re very blessed to live 5mins away from many beautiful beaches. It’s not surprising to know we spend nearly every weekend during summer at the beach.

I wanted to do a beach themed craft to celebrate the amazing summer we’ve just had. I thought it would be cool to do something that could mark this particular summer and try to ‘freeze it in time’. This is what I came up with –

We have added a Video tutorial using a handprint which you can view below.

 

We look forward to trying some other designs in the sand – maybe some writing or paw prints would be fun :).

Please let me know if you make one…we love to hear feedback on our crafts :). Have fun!

 

Sand Footprint moulds – using just a Photo frame, sand, plaster of paris and some shells for extra decoration.

Exactly what you’ll need

  • an old sheet or plastic tablecloth (to protect your work surface).
  • A photo frame big enough to fit the number of prints you wish to use. (A small frame with just one print would look great too).
  • Sand
  • Plaster of Paris (you can find this at most craft & discount stores). I used a 1kg bag to do this sized frame and it cost $4.95.
  • Water for making the plaster
  • Cardboard to use to smooth the sand (we just used some from our recycling)
  • Spray on sealer
  • Glue gun
  • Sea shells for decoration

Start by covering your work surface with something to catch the sand and any drips of plaster – we used an old tarp.

Remove the cardboard backing off the frame and carefully discard the glass from the frame (this will not be needed). Place the cardboard backing over the front of the frame and flip it over – this will create a nice box that you will then fill with sand. I used a flat piece of cardboard to smooth the sand out level with where the glass used to sit (the first inside groove).

How to prep your frame.

Carefully stamp each foot into the sand to make a nice impression – we had to re-do this part a few times with my 1 year old – he just wanted to squeeze his toes into the sand. Once I was happy with the imprints I set about mixing the plaster of paris as per the packet instructions.

Don't worry if you don't get a perfect one - you can re-smooth.

Then gently and slowly pour the mixture over the sand, starting in one corner and covering the whole inside of the frame then using a piece of cardboard level the mixture GENTLY – don’t press down too firmly.

3 easy steps...

As you can see in these photos it can get a bit messy but this is the back of the frame anyway.

Leave plaster to set as per directions on packet – mine was hard after 5 hours – it was a hot and dry day though.

Once you’re sure your plaster has set you can remove the cardboard from the front, tip the frame over and dust off the excess sand. I then gave it some more drying time in the sun before spraying with a sealer. This will help glue and seal any loose sand.

Drying in the sun

 

I then used a glue gun to attach some tiny shells around the picture to add some extra detail. I also wrote “Summer 2013” on the back with a little blurb about all the fun things we did over the summer.

Hanging on our wall :).

DLTK's Bible Activities for Kids
Footprints in the Sand

One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand:
one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him
he looked back, at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of his life
there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it:
"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied:
"My son, My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you,
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
