We have been looking around for the past week for the materials to do the job safely and assumed that there would be a ton of products to help with this, but we cannot find any "stamp kits" for kids. Do we buy a regular ink pad? Is there a special one that is safe for kids? I do not want to buy ink that will leave him looking like a Smurf or send him to the emergency ward! I also would prefer using the Calgary Police Service jail standard issue ink if possible! We never imagined this would be such a chore!
I think the ink footprints are pretty cool and will serve as a lasting reminder of how tiny the little guy once was. I have them in my baby book and I think that they are just too cute to look at! I bet there were no safety considerations for ink and baby's feet in 1977 when mine were done, but I guess this is what they call "progress" right?
We have come across a ton of those plaster kids to imprint their hands and feat, but this will not work for the baby book. We just want some ink darn it! Any suggestions?
