Guitar Foot Print Craft

Last week, I was busy running a music camp for school aged children. We were totally full with just over 20 children!  It was a ton of fun, but I am STILL tired!  

One of the crafts we did were these footprint guitars.  So simple, but so cute!  It's also a great way to introduce the various part names of a guitar.

Using tempera or acrylic paint, paint the foot of your child.  Have them step onto the paper.  Allow the paper to dry.  

Once it's dry, let your child turn it into a guitar!  I gave the children an example, and they ran with it.  You can see that all the guitars are different and unique.  Some basic aspects you can encourage them to draw are the sound hole in the middle of their footprint, the neck, strings, and tuning pegs (the little dots at the top).  I love that every guitar looks so different!
