Butterfly Handprint Craft
This kids handprint craft is a colorful activity to keep the kids busy and celebrate the Spring and Summer season. This handprint card uses a few different textures and is such a fun introductory craft for preschoolers but is still fun for the older kids as well. We love to use a few different craft supplies when working on our kid crafts. The more texture you can add to a kid’s project the better! Tiny hands learn to make a handprint, glue gems to the butterfly “wings,” and draw on a smile. Add a soft touch with the antennas and they will have a blast playing with the different elements.
Here are the Supplies needed for the Butterfly Handprint Craft:
You only need a few basic craft supplies to get started! We added gems to our butterflies to add a pop of color and fun but if you don’t have any just skip it! You can find gems at your local craft stores, Walmart or even some Dollar stores.
- Paint, in your desired colors
- Paper, in your desired colors
- Googly Eyes,
- Pipe Cleaners
- Sharpie Marker
- Gems, optional but we love them!
