'Twas the Night Before Christmas' Footprint Craft

Is it too early to mention Christmas crafts!?! The kids have been busy making footprint mouse keepsake cards (with a FREE PRINTABLE). The story 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' is a favourite in our house and these Christmas cards combine part of the poem from the story with a cute footprint mouse keepsake. The Christmas printable available makes it easy to make enough of these cute cards for all the family! These keepsake Christmas cards are perfect for babies, toddlers and preschoolers to make.

Last year I saw a gorgeous canvas on pinterest (pictured below) with the 'Twas the Night before Christmas' poem alongside 2 footprint mice and I fell in love with it.

I can't find who made the canvas to give credit so please do let me know if you know the source. I also love this version by 'Crafty morning and this ceramic plate (pictured below) by painted zebra

Feeling inspired I decided to make a printable which included the poem with a space for a cute little mouse footprint.

  1. Simply download and print out the FREE PRINTABLE.  We printed it onto white card. 
  2. Print a grey footprint next to the poem. (we added a bit of extra sparkle by adding a squirt of silver glitter glue)
  3. Add grey ears and a tail
  4. Once the grey paint has dried add a pink nose and ears.
  5. Use a black sharpie to add eyes and whiskers

Adding a child's name and age would be a nice added touch. If you want the cards to be opened you will need to mount the printable onto a larger folded piece of card. 

I made these footprints with Daisy (age 2) and she was so proud of her little footprint mice.  I cant wait for her to hand them out to family at Christmas.
