Funniest thing happened today. We originally planned to make some footprint alligators but the second one did NOT look like one! In fact it looked just like a big dinosaur head! So if your child has an arch in their foot I would go for the alligator, if they have flat/wider feet they should go for a dinosaur! I'm not sure how they would look with bigger/longer feet but i'm sure they'd still be cute.
Start by painting your child's foot with green paint and have them stamp it on a piece of white paper diagonally. Paint the other foot and have them place it down so it looks like a sideways "V."
Stick on a googly eye while the paint is still wet so it stays. Once it dries, grab a black marker and draw some sharp teeth!
For the dinosaur you pretty much do the same things but add a bigger googly eye! Rawr!
