I just love when my kids bring home handprint art, don’t you? My son made this handprint butterfly poem keepsake when he was in kindergarten and it’s the sweetest thing! The kids made them for a surprise Mother’s Day gift along with DIY pens and coupon books.
How to make the Handprint Butterfly Poem Keepsake
- Paint the hands in a color of choice.
- Make one handprint on each side of the butterfly’s body.
- Color in the body or cover it with fingerprints. Let dry.
- Optional: Add a photo of the child’s face or leave it as is.
- Send the finished sheet through a laminator.
- Use a hole punch to make a hole near the top of each side.
- Add a piece of yarn or similar for hanging.
Be sure to have the child write their name, age, and date either on the front or back side for remembering later on before laminating!
My then kindergartner also made a cute little coupon book. I’m not sure where his teacher printed them from, but here’s a couple cute ones I’ve found:
