Handprint Butterflies

Rachel and I were messing around with handprints again this evening and we stumbled into making this craft which turns the ordinary handprint into butterflies.  It's great for our People, Prayers and Potatoes this week with it's theme of Love because it reinforces how God wants us to Love and care for the world and all it's animals and plants.

Here are the 3 simple steps we took:

1. fold paper in half, draw round your hand

2. cut out the hand and you'll have two wings

3. decorate both the cut out wings with a body and face; and also the silhouette.

Bingo; 2 simple handprint butterflies.

Rachel loves them and has an idea to put the silhouette butterfly on top of bright coloured papers to make different coloured butterflies - she's inventive my girl.
