Handprint Butterfly Craft

contributed by Leanne Guenther

Yet another craft that uses handprints (I love 'em!!).  This one takes a bit more work than a normal one because you need to assemble the wings (5 handprints each).

Check out the Handprint Poems on the site if you would like to include one with the craft.

butterfly craft STEP 2:  Glue a second pink handprint with the thumb facing up to the first pink handprint.  

Glue a second purple handprint with the thumb facing down to the first purple handprint.

butterfly craft STEP 3:  Repeat step 1 on the right side
