Welcome back! You might remember, we made a Duck using handprints last year. This time, we decided to make a Butterfly using handprints which goes well with the theme of this week. Butterflies are known for their colorful wings and despite their small size and short life, they are considered to be one of the most beautiful creature on this planet. Any craft with handprints is always a hit among kids and this one was no different and as it unfolded to a colorful butterfly, their excitement couldn’t be less.
What you’ll need : Construction Paper, Scissor, Colored Tissue Paper, Googly Eyes, Button, Chenille Stems & Glue.
Step 1: Trace your child’s hand on a colored construction paper and cut out the tracing for butterfly wings.
Step 2: On a dark color construction paper, draw butterfly’s body and cut it out.
Step 3: Glue the handprint tracings i.e., the wings to the body of the butterfly.
Step 4: Fold the Chenille stems in half and curl the end parts and stick it from the back side of the butterfly’s head to make an antenna. Glue googly eyes and a button to add the eyes and nose.
Step 5: Crush colored tissue paper and glue it on butterfly wings to make them more colorful and attractive.
You can also have your kids trace around lids to make some circles and glue to the wings to decorate as an alternative. Enjoy the rest of the week and would love to hear back from you all on your creative ideas and thoughts.
