Cute Little Hands Make a Cute Little Butterfly!
Emily loves the butterfly at the end of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, written by Eric Carle, so today we made a Hand Print Butterfly.
First, I put yellow, magenta and white paint on the lid of a take out container large enough for Emily's hand. (I like using these lids instead of paper plates because they are reusable and we have a large collection of them.) Emily blended the colors with a Popsicle stick.
Next, Emily put her hand in the paint and made a print on the white paper. I helped her position them.
After we had two prints next to each other we waited for them to dry.
Emily glued on a foam piece for the body, two googly eyes and a pipe cleaner for the antenna
This is how we waited for the paint to dry!!
Emily had fun using the rest of the paint to finger/hand print on a large piece of packing paper I had saved from a recent package we received!
