Mother's Day Butterfly Footprints

Another fun footprint idea for kids!
Connor and I did another quick craft together and I quickly learned how much harder this is going to be as he gets older. Now that he grabs at everything, using paint is much more of a mess!
As usual, we do this in the bathtub so he can get cleaned up right away.
I stamped his feet on some colored cardstock and cut them out. I also cut out little butterfly bodies and used some silver pipe cleaners for the butterfly antennae.
I printed out this little poem and left a space to attach the butterfly.
I also wrote "Love, Connor" and the date on the bottom.

Hope the Grandmas like them!

  5. Awww...It's such a joy to watch Connor grow! I love your creative finger and footprint projects. Such a wonderful way to make permanent records of each precious "step" in his life!

  6. So adorable! I started a cross stitch with my nephew's footprints 5 years ago when he was a baby. I have yet to finish the cross stitch but I'm so glad we captured his tiny little feet forever. Thanks so much for sharing at Etcetorize and reminding that I should put that back on my 'to finish' list~

  7. You've got an adorable baby!I like the way you include him in your crafty projects. Love this one and will be trying it for Father's day.


I love to hear from you! Please leave me a note!
