    Hi girls,

    I really really want to get some prints or impressions done of Max's hand/feet as a surprise for OH for fathers day. Can anyone suggest the best way to go about it? I have seen a few home kits online but they look a bit fiddly, are they?? Ideally I would like to get someone to do them for us but they seem to be super expensive :wacko:

    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!

    We had one home kit for making hand/foot prints from Babies R us and I quite liked it. It was easy to do without making any mess. I can not really remember the brand...but the price was about 8-9 pounds

    Do you not have anywhere locally that is like a pottery painting place? We did a mug there & they did the footprints.

    I also had a mug done at a pottery cafe where they help you do the footprints and it's lovely.

    Also, at the baby show they had these special no-ink footprint kits which had a wipe that you rub on baby's foot and then press it onto the paper. The wipe is clear but when the foot touches the paper, there is a reaction and it leaves a dark print. I thought this was a good idea because it is much less messy than using paint or ink. I think that they will then put the footprints onto mugs / plates etc for you.
