How to make a baby footprint clay bowl:

STEP 1: Gather your supplies

Before you get started, gather up all your supplies so you have them ready. While this is a simple craft, it helps to have everything out ahead of time, especially when working with babies! Make sure you have something nearby to clean baby up after taking the prints, baby wipes or a bowl of water and a towel are perfect. 

STEP 2: Prep your clay

Once you've done that, prep your clay by rolling it out 1 centimetre thick (or 1/2 an inch). Make it big enough to press your baby's feet into as shown below. Do not cut it just yet! Just roll out a big piece of clay. Make sure the clay is on a hard surface to help create clear prints. A piece of wood or a chopping board covered in baking paper works well.

STEP 3: Add rainbow baby footprints

Now that you have your clay rolled out, it's time to add the rainbow footprints! Make sure your baby is comfortable and happy and then get started! Press your baby's foot firmly into the rainbow inkpad so that each colour is horizontally covering baby's foot.

Then, press baby's foot into the clay firmly. Carefully remove their foot from the clay. Clean their foot using water or a baby wipe and then repeat with the other foot to create a heart shape.

STEP 4: Make heart shaped clay bowl

To finish up, cut around the baby's feet to create a heart shape.

Then, put the clay heart shape inside a small bowl and leave it to dry for 24 hours. This will create the bowl shape. Now your clay bowl craft ready to use or gift to a loved one!
