Our family is a huge fan of handprint crafts and we're getting pretty creative with what we can turn them into! This handprint butterfly craft for kids is our most recent spring craft that kids are sure to love. Let your children decorate their butterfly however they would like so that years later you'll have captured both the size of their little hands as well as a little snapshot of their creativity as well.

What you'll need:

  • Construction paper
  • Googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Sequins, glitter, stickers, markers, etc.
How to make your Handprint Butterfly:
  • Trace your child's hands (with their fingers together) onto construction paper and cut them out. You will need two cut-outs of each hand (4 total).
  • Cut a long, thin oval out of a different color of construction paper for the body. You need the body to be long enough so that you can glue the wings to it.
  • Glue the wings to the back of the body so that they overlap slightly on each side.
  • Cut two antennae out of black construction paper and glue to the top of the body.
  • Cut a smile out of construction paper and glue to the body.
  • Glue on two googly eyes.
  • Decorate your butterfly with sequins, glitter, markers, etc.
