Painting sessions with kids are great since these activities do not require a lot of materials, and Crayola Kid’s Paints are very affordable! There are tons of beautiful footprint and handprint arts in the internet but we decided to try out the vehicles. Here are the 4 adorable and must try vehicle footprints that can easily be done with babies, infants and toddlers. And hey, even older kids can have fun with this as well!
1. Create 4 footprints in different papers. My little boy chose color blue (2x), brown and red.
2. Let the footprints airdry.
3. With the use of the sharpie, draw an airplane, boat, police car and a train as seen in the pictures below. And that’s it!
4 Must Try Adorable Vehicle Footprints:

3. CAR FOOTPRINT
4. TRAIN FOOTPRINT
Now that you have these 4 adorable paintings using the footprints of your kid, what are some fun ways to do with them? Surely, we will save and collect them or stick the arts in the door fridge. But how about trying out the 3 ideas mentioned below:
3 Fun ideas to use the paintings:
1. Play a vehicle matching game.
My son and I probably play matching games every week. We use matching games to learn animals, letters, colors and numbers. And for this week, we played vehicle matching game.
2. Introduce the different modes of transportation – air, land, water.
Why not try introducing the different modes of transportation like train is for land, boat is for water, and airplane is for air. And even if toddlers might not totally grasp the whole concept, a quick introduction will not hurt. It might also be fun to gather other vehicle toys and sort them out according to the modes of transportaion.
3. Frame the paintings.
We mostly stick my son’s paintings in the fridge or save them in a box. But for few of his arts, we framed and use them as wall decors. We also try to rotate the paintings so we can enjoy all of them.
And those are the three easy and fun ways to use these adorable paintings. If you would love to see more matching game activities, please click the images below. Please don’t forget to leave some comments below, I would love to hear ideas from you!
