This week our Burlington mom and baby group – Baby Basics – got together to make a spring inspired butterfly footprint craft. It’s PERFECT for Mother’s Day – and our 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.
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.
