Feel like making a fly today.
You’ll need a black craft foam, a laminating sheet, pipe cleaner, some yarn, stones for the eyes and glue.
Trace your handprint on the laminating sheet.

Cut two circles of slightly different sizes and a small oval and paste them onto a piece of paper to form the abdomen of the fly.

Spread glue onto the laminating sheet and scatter some yarn all over it.

Sorry for the picture does not really show the ‘wings’ properly. Anyway, here is the handprint fly.

Isn’t this beautiful? A nice and simple to do hand print crab.
First, paint your palm yellow. I got Ethan’s chubby hands as my model here.
Then paint all five fingers orange.

Stamp it onto a white paper. Repeat with the other hand. Then using your finger, put 2 black fingerprint as the eyes on the ‘thumb’.

The handprint crab is done and Ethan is all smiles!

This handprint butterfly is simple to do.
I got Ethan to draw the outline of his palm. And then I helped him cut it out.
Paste the cut-out hands on a piece of paper.
I use black foam for the body and got Ethan to paste the googly eyes.

At the playground today, Ethan kept on observing the trees and the falling leaves. He has seen those trees and the leaves everyday for so many months now but wonder why today he was more intrigue by them. So when we got back home, I decided to do this craft with him.
By now this boy is an expert in tracing the outline of his palm. I helped him cut out the ‘hands’ as he is too young to use the scissors.
I let him do his own pasting. One thing about craft for kids is, the more imperfect it is, the better I like it!
He is so proud of all his crafts, he kept on telling Daddy, “Ethan make tree” and also “Ethan make SUN” referring to his previous Sun craft! 🙂
