My niece Hannah has a 1-year old and while looking for homemade Father's Day gifts from toddlers she found this super cute idea for a Father's Day Footprint Keychain! I love (LOVE) that's it's easy and inexpensive – plus something that dad can actually carry around with him 🙂
Guys. HOW CUTE IS THIS??
All you'll need is shrinky dink paper and paint – plus maybe a toddler distraction to keep them happy while you paint those wiggly little feet.
Father's Day Footprint Keychain
What you'll need:
- Crystal Clear or Frosted Shrinky Dink Sheets
- Craft Paint
- Key Rings
- Jump Rings from craft store
- Mod Podge
- Preheat oven to 325
- Paint baby's foot generously with craft paint (have baby wipes handy for mess-ups!)
- Press baby's foot up against the shrinky dink sheet, do a few so you can choose the best looking one at the end
- Cut out around the foot, leaving a little extra space as a border
- Use a hole punch to make a hole in the footprint for the keychain to go (VERY IMPORTANT!)
- Put on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 2-3 minutes (make sure paint side is up)
- Once it cools, you can write the date on the back and cover/paint with a layer of mod podge
- Open up the jump ring a little and slip it on, then add the keychain. Clamp the jump ring back tightly with needle nose pliers.
**IF you smear the footprint on the shrinky dink paper, alcohol on a paper towel will take it right off so you can start over.
