Handprint Poem – Mother’s Day Poem from Child

There is a really cute poem you can add to it also (print off and add an insert card or hand write and include inside the card):

This isn’t just a Butterfly
As you can plainly see.
I made it with my hand
Which is a part of me.
It comes with lots of Love
Especially to say
I hope you have a very
Happy Mother’s Day

Here are the supplies you’ll need to make these butterfly handprint cards: 

Steps to Make these Butterfly Handprint Cards

1. First fold over your card stock in half.

2. Now trace your child’s hand as shown below, so that the wrist is on the fold side (when cut out you’ll get a mirrored hand).

3. Now add an antennae and cut out your butterfly!

4. With a different colored paper, cut out a body and head and glue to the outside of the butterfly. Glue on some googly eyes.

You can make the head a circle or a heart. We have done it both ways!

Here is what the butterfly card looks like with a heart head.

5. Now draw on the mouth.

6. Decorate the handprint wings. We have made these cards with pom poms as shown and also with fingerprint painted spots. You could also do rhinestones, craft foam or any other craft decoration for the wings.

7. To make one for Grandma, trace out a Mom or Dad handprint to add to the back of the child’s handprint. Grandma will love to receive this card from both of you!

8. You can add the Mother’s Day handprint poem inside or simply write a nice Mother’s Day message.
