DIY: Hand Butterfly


On a rainy day week while the little guy had cold, we scavenged the house for supplies to do a project at home. He really enjoyed tracing his own hands on paper at the time, so it inspired me to make a butterfly with his hand cut-outs. The supplies are simple (and feel free to use replacements): wooden popsicle sticks (2 of them if you don't want to see the paper-foldings), card stock paper, scissors, glue (we used PVA glue), marker, and we used round stickers to decorate the butterfly wings. And the pictures will explain the how-to's.

S asked if we could take him to see the cows on the hills this weekend, so we're going hiking tomorrow to enjoy the warm weather! I hope you have something fun planned too. Happy friday!
