Which is a part of me.
It comes with lots of Love
Especially to say

Craft:  Handprint Butterfly

  • For each hand, trace child’s hand onto three different colored construction papers x 2 and cut out.
  • Layer them, cutting away parts of the hand so that you have a multi-colored hand (wing).
  • Place them in place of the butterfly wings using this butterly coloring page as a template.
  • Cut out the butterfly’s body and place on top.
  • Cut a circle for the head. Add the antannae, eyes and a smile.
  • Once you have everything in place, glue onto a
    “spring” background page of scrapbook paper, such as one with flowers.
  • Add the above poem – place in a purchased tray (see below), frame or have the child create a homemade frame.
  • Give a as Mother’s Day gift to Mom or Grandmom!
