Santa’s Footprints

WARNING:  For Adults only!  ; )  While my blog is strictly “G” rated; I would never want to be the one to “let the Santa outta the bag”.  If your children  are around; you might want to send them in the other room.

Okay, now that it’s just us grown ups…

Do you remember what it was like when you began to question the big guy’s existence?  We all go through it. So many unanswered questions.  Friends and siblings pointing out what you just don’t want to think could be true…Santa did not really visit your house on Christmas Eve!


When my oldest children were toddlers I happened upon a little trick to keep them guessing longer.  I had a boot template and some fake snow that I would use to leave Santa Footprints around our tree and fireplace.  As they got older, the template disappeared into a long forgotten box with photos and letters to Santa.

This year while making my Santa Boot Hand Towel, I remembered the template and thought how cute it would be to start leaving footprints for Mini-me.  I decided I needed to make a new template.


I used one of Mr. AK’s shoes, placed it upside down and put a sheet of paper over the sole.  I then dug deep into my memories and pulled out “the old crayon rub technique”. 


I used a blue crayon (blue, because that is just what I grabbed) and rubbed the image of the sole onto the paper.  I traced around the front of the shoe print and the heel of the shoe print.

Rudolph-2Once the print was clearly outlined, I put the paper on top of a piece of cardstock (heavy weight) paper and used a straight edge knife to cut the top and heel portions out.


I wanted a to make sure that my print would turn out just right, so I placed it under the tree and sprinkled some fake snow on top.


I lifted the template and all that remained on the carpet was a print of Santa’s boot.


If I want to make a walking print, I will simply turn the template over so that I have one left foot and one right foot.

I can’t wait until Christmas morning when he sees proof that Santa really was in our home! 

And, before any one asks: The snow is still here on Christmas morning (in the hot Australian summer) because Santa Clause uses magic and the magic fell on the snow. [It’s like fairy dust"]

Ho Ho Ho,
