Footprint game

Footprint game

Next rainy day, thrill your kids by letting them follow footprints around the house to discover a prize at the end. The Footprint game takes bit of preparation time – but is so worth it. You could even covert it into an Easter egg hunt game at Easter time. Watch the video to see how.

What you need:

  • 3 large A3 sheets of cardboard (not too thick)
  • Clear floor
  • Blu-tack
  • Textas
  • Scissors
  • A prize for the end of the game (optional)

Number of players:


Watch the video to see how to make and play the Footprint game.


Get your children to trace around each of their feet onto the cardboard. Use the footprints as a template to make lots of footprints. At least 10 of each.

Lay a trail of footprints through the house, using Blu-tack to stick them to the floor. If you have carpet you could use a bit of masking tape to tape them lightly.

Put a prize at the end of the trail.

Say, "Ready, set, go!"  and watch as your kids follow the trail.

You could then suggest they make a new trail of their own to follow.

Hints and tips:

Turn this into a Easter egg hunt game by placing a basket of Easter eggs at the end of the footprint trail.
