Kids will have fun using their feet to make a footprint rocket craft that can fly to the moon and back using our free template and directions.
The rocket craft template is versatile and can be used for lots of occasions like space-themed craft days, holiday cards like for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s day, or any time someone needs some extra love or a cute gift.
Footprint crafts are the best because they always result in lots of giggles while the paint is being applied to those cute little feet. While you are here be sure to check out the rest of our Footprint Crafts.
Kids of all ages can make this craft, little feet make little rockets, and big feet make big rockets. My little guy’s foot was so tiny when we made this. I can’t believe he was only one (now he is three)… time flies so fast, we must be having lots of fun!
What is Included in the Craft Template?
The free template includes pieces for the rocket, flames, a moon, and the words, “I Love you to the Moon and Back.” Children can decide what parts of the template they want to use to make their rocket craft all their own.
Can the Footprint Rocket craft be Made into a Card?
Yes, all you have to do is fold a piece of paper in half. Then the footprint rocket can be glued onto the front to make a keepsake card.

Red or Yellow Craft Paper or Markers
Gray and red or yellow craft paint (I like to use acrylic paint for footprint crafts because it is thicker and has brighter colors, but tempera paint or any non-toxic paint should work.)
White Paper (I like to use white cardstock when we make footprint crafts because it is thicker and stronger)
Note: To make a card, fold your background paper in half and glue the words on the inside of the card.

Cover your child’s toes with red or yellow paint, and the rest of their foot with gray paint. Carefully press their foot on the paper. You may want to place your paper on the floor so they can stand on it. Make sure their toes don’t wiggle.
