Handprint Butterfly

This Handprint Butterfly is a great craft for the younger kids. These handprints are made out of paper and are less messy for the classroom or parties. How will you decorate your butterflies?

Trivia: A butterfly’s lifecycle is made up of four parts, egg, larva (caterpillars), pupa (chrysalis) and adult.


Markers, Crayons or Colored Pencils
Construction Paper

Keeping your fingers together, trace four times around your hand and cut out.

Print the butterfly body. Cut out.

Glue the hand cut-outs behind the body as wings. Decorate.

We traced around lids and spools to make a bunch of circles and glued to the wings to decorate.

Fold a pipe cleaner in half. Curl the ends to shape like antennae. glue behind the butterfly's head.
