Emmi's First Halloween + Keepsake Tutorial

This October is extra fun and special for us and Emmi. It is her first BIG holiday, Halloween! And
there are so many first happenings throughout this month. Like going to the pumpkin patch for the first time. She turns 9 months in a few days. First time dressing up and going trick-or-treating. SO many good stuff and such a fun month. So to make this holiday month more memorable I am making Emmi a little Halloween keepsake that is personalized and super easy + fun to make.

First Halloween Hand/Foot Print Keepsake

Here is what you will need 
Card stock paper in white
Black, White, Orange paint 
Paint brush
Frames, any size you want
Halloween themed ribbon (optional) 

Step 1- Gather supplies
Paper, paint, brushes, baby

Step 2- Make sure babies foot and hands are clean 
I used Huggies Natural Care Wipes

Step 3- Grab a brush and dip it into some paint
slowly make sure you apply enough paint to the whole foot/hand

Step 4- Carefully have your baby stand on the paper
Get a good stamp of his/her foot, repeat if you must. We  did!

Step 5- Immediately wipe babies foot 
So they don't get it all over. Let that paint dry

Step 6-Add in other features 
( I.e eyes, mouth) You can make a spider, pumpkin, ghost.

This project got a little messy for us. It is OK, it happens to the best of us. Babies, toddlers, and kids in general are born to make messes. No need to stress when I have my all time favorite wipes. The Huggies Natural Care wipes have been my go-to since Emmi was born. I always get them at Babies "R" Us because they always have the best stock of wipes available. Not to worry, Babies "R' Us carries the Huggies Natural Care wipes at stores nationwide. So you can purchase your baby some. 

Now that I am getting ready for Emmi's First Halloween, Babies "R" Us is helping me because it has all the things I need to make her first Halloween more memorable, like Baby costumes  and a lot of cute clothing items for Babies first Halloween. Speaking about celebrating babies First Halloween, this Saturday, October 15 from 11 am to 12 pm, Babies "R" us is having a super fun in-store event. There will be Giveaways and Raffles prizes, a keepsake craft, and parade around the store. You can meet and mingle with other moms who also have babies that will be celebrating their First Halloween.
