Step #3: Press your child’s hand onto the handprint template

The best type of paper for handprint crafts is a piece of white cardstock paper. However, it’s not necessary. Copy paper will work too.

Make sure to lay the template on a flat surface and help your child press their hand onto the paper (card stock is best). Here’s the secret to getting a good handprint – Lift your child’s painted palm, straight up – this way fingers aren’t moving or sliding.

Tip: Lift your child’s hand, straight up, that’s the secret to getting a good handprint.

Step #4: Optional – Decorate & Sign your Art Work

After the butterfly dries, you can use markers to decorate your beautiful artwork. You can add dots and lines to the set of wings. You can glue small googly eyes to the butterfly.

You can even glue on sequins, pom poms, or construction paper pieces for a multi-media piece of art.
