Activity Preparation

Follow these simple steps to create the ultimate reusable pedi painting activity for your kids:

Step 1: Prepare Your Painting Activity Workspace

Start by setting up a clean and spacious workspace for your project. Gather all the craft materials and make sure you have enough room to work comfortably.

  • Step 2: Create a Feet Template

Draw or trace a feet template on a sheet of construction paper. You can either use your child’s feet or find a template online. Cut out the feet using scissors and set them aside.

  • Step 3: Cut the Poster Board

Using a box cutter, carefully cut out the poster board to match the size of the feet template. Be sure to work on a cutting mat or other protected surface to avoid damaging your table.

  • Step 4: Attach the Feet to the Poster Board

Place the feet cutouts onto the poster board and secure them in place using glue or double-sided tape.

  • Step 5: Outline the Toenails

Use a permanent marker to outline the toenails on each foot. This will give your kids a clear guide for where to paint.

  • Step 6: Cover with Contact Paper

Cut a piece of contact paper large enough to cover the entire poster board. Peel the backing off and carefully place the sticky side down onto the poster board, making sure to smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles.

  • Step 7: Prepare the Paint

Set up a palette with various colors of washable paint. Encourage your kids to mix and match colors to create unique and fun designs!

  • Step 8: Let the Painting Activity Begin!

Now it’s time for the main event! Let your kids dive into the painting activity, using their fingers or brushes to paint the toenails on the feet cutouts. Remember to use washable paint, as this will make the activity reusable.

  • Step 9: Clean Up and Reuse

When the painting session is over, simply wipe away the washable paint with a damp cloth or sponge. Allow the paint to dry completely before storing the activity away for future use.

  • Step 10: Share Your Masterpieces

Don’t forget to take pictures of your kids’ creative pedi painting masterpieces and share them with friends and family! You can also post them on social media, tagging us for a chance to be featured.
