Kids will love it when they get to use their feet to make these cute butterfly prints. No matter the age, all feet will get a tickle from the paint being applied to their footsies. So much fun!

Approximate Time:

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Set up work area with newspaper to cut down on the mess that could happen with this project.
  2. Ad

  3. Paint the bottom of one foot of the child. For really young children, this works well when they are sitting in the high chair.
  4. Press the foot of the child onto the paper on the opposite side to make the first footprint. For example, if you are painting the right foot first, place it on the left side of the paper.
  5. Clean the foot already used and paint the bottom of the other foot of the child.
  6. Press their foot onto the paper to create the footprint that makes up the other half of the butterfly.
  7. Allow to dry.
  8. Add a body and antennas if you wish.

Neat idea! I am going to try this tomorrow with my 4 yr old boy and then send a little butterfly off to his grandma 1000 miles away! Neat!

A very simple project kids can make to decorate their rooms. Place some holiday garland or shredded tissue paper into a plastic sandwich bag.

These are cute little magnets that are a blast for the kids to make. They love spraying their artwork with water and watching the colors soften and blend.

This stick craft butterfly is fun to wave in the air like it is flying through your house. Or, use the stick as a plant stake to add something extra to an inside potted plant.
