This week momstown Burlington Baby Basics got together to make a spring inspired butterfly footprint craft. It's PERFECT for Mother's Day - and the moms got to keep one for themselves, and made an extra for Grandma!
Want to make your own butterfly footprint? We've got a butterfly poem, a butterfly template and some tips for you below.
Tip 1: Try using a heavier weight paper - like cardstock, but NOT construction paper - which can tend to suck up the paint
Tip 2: Use a clipboard - and bring the paper to baby's foot - not baby's foot to the paper.
Tip 3: Place baby on the a cushioned flat surface, with head facing away from you, so you have easy access to their feet.
Tip 4: One foot at a time! Don't paint both at the same time - trust us - this craft can be messy enough!
Tip 5: Use your hand to press the centre of baby's foot. Those babies with high insteps sometimes take a little work to get a cute footprint.
Tip 6: Take this craft to the next level and create the butterfly on the side of a dollar store flower pot- what a lovely gift for mom or grandma!
May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun.
And find your shoulder to light on.
To bring you luck, happiness and riches.
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
Happy Mother's Day!
