 Butterfly Handprint and Poem

You will need:

3 colors of paint and black.

White construction paper


Have the child open his hand and spread his fingers, palm facing up.

The body of the butterfly is painted in black. Start with the tip of the child's middle finger and paint all the way to the bottom of the palm.

Next color the palm on both sides of the black line with the first color.

Then paint the thumb and pinky finger with the second color.

Lastly paint the last two remaining fingers with the third color.

Next press the hand onto a piece of white construction paper. Make sure to keep the middle finger still and move the other fingers to expand the "wings" of the butterfly.

When the paint dries you can add antennae with a marker.

Cut out butterfly and mount on a contrasting piece of construction paper with the following poem:

This isn't just a Butterfly

As you can plainly see.

I made it with my hand

Which is a part of me.

It comes with lots of Love

Especially to say

I hope you have a very

Make a home-made card or a wall hanging with your handprint on it, and print this poem!

My Handprint

Sometimes you get discouraged

Because I am so small

And always leave my fingerprints

On furniture and walls

But everyday I'm growing big

And soon I'll be very tall

Then all my little handprints

Will be hard to recall

So here's a special handprint

Just so that you can say

this is how my fingers looked

when I placed them here today.

Put a boarder around the poem and add the child's name and the year.

Tissue Paper Flowers Craft

You can make an entire bouquet of them for a great gift or decoration.

You will need:

Tissue paper

Green pipe cleaners (or twist ties)

Cut a few pieces (about 4-6) of tissue paper about 8 x 10 inches (the exact size doesn't matter). Put the paper in a pile and fold it like an accordion.

Tie the center of the folded paper with a green pipe cleaner (or twist tie).

Gently pull each piece of paper towards the top center of the flower, separating each sheet of paper from the others (forming the petals of the flower).
