Warm weather is finally here to stay in Ohio and we can not get enough outside time! Today, we spent some time inside making this easy but adorable butterfly. This craft can be done with any age child!

- White Paper (You’ll likely need at least two pieces, depending on the size of your child’s hands and feet)
- A marker
I started by putting paint into two paper plates. I used a single color on one plate and multiple colors on the other. You can use whatever you have on hand to hold the paint.
I helped my daughter dip her foot in the pink paint and put it on the white paper. I then helped her dip her hands in the other paint and onto the white paper. We did each hand print twice so there would be a total of four.
After the paint dried, I cut out the handprints and footprint. I gave them to my toddler to glue on. If you are doing this craft with a young child, you can either do the gluing so that it resembles a butterfly!
To finish this craft, I gave my daughter a marker so that she could give her butterfly eyes and antennas.
