As parents, we go out of our way to make our children’s holidays special. Although I did not know it as a kid, it was my parents who would leave a trail of jelly beans in the hallway and a piece of cotton batting caught in the door jamb for Easter, there would be sleigh bells ringing faintly from outside and a half-eaten carrot on the lawn at Christmas, and many other thoughtful clues that were left to make my holiday a little more magical. With my own two children, I find myself doing similar things: leaving a scrap of red velour caught in the door for Santa’s suit, green food coloring in the toilet water for St. Patrick’s day, and even attempting to make trails of various footprints for “proof” of a visit.
That’s why I am delighted to be reviewing Hoppy Paws this week. Trina of Hoppy Paws can attest to many of the same magical tricks being accomplished around her home for her own kids as they were growing up, so she decided to make an easy, go-to kit for parents. Hoppy Paws makes for a beloved family tradition that will delight your children with proof of a visit by their favorite holiday characters! The stamping kits create realistic, life-sized prints of Santa’s Reindeer, The Easter Bunny, The Tooth fairy and many more.
Hoppy Paws go on easily to most indoor and outdoor hard surfaces and are completely safe and biodegradable. Not limited for home use, I am going to use my Easter Bunny Paw kit for an upcoming Easter photo shoot as extra decoration in the background!
To use: simply open your kit and mix the stamping powder in the provided tray with water and a spoon. Mix thoroughly and dip the stencil in the mixture and press on the desired surface. Allow the prints to dry for 20 minutes or you can speed up the process by using a hair dryer. For clean-up, dampen a cloth with water and simply wipe away!
Check out Hoppy Paws stamp kits for St. Patrick’s Day and Easter, both of which are coming up soon as well as the other fun kits they provide!
