Click the link below to find directions to make these cool butterflies……..
On a pallet place purple on bottom and blue on top and mix together where they meet. This should be finger paint that is edible. The area of paint on pallet (which can just be cardboard) should be slightly larger than your child’s foot. Place your child’s foot into the paint and press firmly onto canvas. Make the top of the antennae with the big toes. Let dry. When dry with black paint and thin brush or with large sharpie markers and make body, face and antennae. You can make a few of these at one time that make excellent gifts for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day as well as Grandparents. Change out colors to make an interesting butterflies.
What a great idea to send your child to school with, or anywhere actually. You can even have your child help you decorate the wooden clothespins with markers or paint and then add the googly eyes and pipe cleaners. Fill each side with a little something special and clip in the middle. Would make a great surprise when your special someone opens their lunch bag and sees something special their child made for them also. I do recommend that if you are to use a dry on one side and a wet on another, as you see pictured, that you might want to tie it tight with a rubber band to keep the moisture on one side so your dry goodies won’t get damp. Another idea is to use these are party favors.
