Robin Footprints

Did you know that robins are a symbol of Christmas? During the 1800s, Victorian mail carriers wore bright red uniforms, and the darling little birds became associated with the postmen who delivered the holiday cards. So it's only fitting that we created a robin footprint to make some Christmas cards as well. You could also stick the robins to a canvas or let your child make some robin-themed wrapping paper using their footprints.
