By: Caroline Smith

Making a baby footprint or handprint is a wonderful way to capture the joy and wonderment of your baby's early life, and create a permanent record of just how tiny and adorable those little toes and hands are. Your little bundle of joy is sure to grow all too quickly, and most parents find those first few months in their newborn's life pass by in a flash. This is all the more reason to make baby footprints and handprints, so you have a lasting reminder of those precious days.

These days the internet makes it really easy for parents to buy a baby footprint kit, so there's no excuse for not having time to buy the materials! You can order a complete kit online, at the click of a button, and have it delivered straight to your door. What could be simpler? There are various types of baby hand and footprint crafts. Making ink prints is popular. Another common way of making a baby keepsake footprint is to make an impression in clay, or even make a 3D cast.

Making your baby footprints and handprints can be a lot of fun, and by using a specially designed kit you can be sure that the materials are all non-toxic and totally baby-friendly. Once you've made your prints, you can let your creativity loose. For instance, you could display them in a baby footprint frame, either individually or with a special poem to express your emotions of becoming a parent, or with a favorite picture of your newborn. Alternatively, you could paste ink footprints into a scrapbook or album, or use them as a unique way of recording your baby's growth. It's up to you!

An inexpensive baby footprint kit enables you to have a play and come up with all kinds of uses for your baby's cute little prints. It makes a great present to give at a baby shower.
