Family Matters: Baby’s First Craft Project


Are you coming up on Baby’s First Mother’s Day? Here’s a fun project that babies of any age can participate in, and it makes a great gift for moms, grandmothers, aunts and cousins.

Make hand print butterflies by dipping your baby’s hands in paint! Place both color-dipped  hands near the top of the paper with thumbs about two inches apart. Then dip their hands in another color of paint and have their hands go in opposite direction (just below the other hands) with the thumbs about 2 inches apart again (sometimes it’s easier to rotate the paper instead of the baby’s hands!).

Let the hands dry and paint a body down the middle. Write “A Handful of Love” on the butterfly body and place a small photo of the child on it. Add pipe cleaners on the head for antennae.

Older children can make the same project with much less help from you!

Note: take lots of photos of this project. You’ll want to remember it!
