Could Never Fill Your Shoes Step-By-Step

Directions (step-by-step photo above):

  1. Have your child, or you, paint the bottom of Dad’s shoe, make shoe print on paper. Let dry.
  2. Once dry, paint your child’s foot and make imprint over Dad’s shoe print.  If using more than one child, have one footprint on each side of the shoe (pictured above).
