    Next, you are going to use those baby feet to make the wings of the owl. You can place the prints upside down or however you think they look the best. You can even make handprints for the wings too!

    Restrain the child (legally of course) to control the application of the prints! We distracted B with puffs to eat in his high chair! Carefully ink the bottom of the feet and apply to the card. It helps to have two extra hands for this step. Use the diaper wipes or wet paper towels to wipe the ink off the footsies!
