When Maryanne of Mama Smiles blog shared her vision (& very personal reason) for the Small Hands Creating Hope project, I knew I had to be part of it. I LOVE that it is a celebration of life, gives us an opportunity to talk to our children about people who are affected by cancer and offers the chance to do something on their level for others.
What exactly is Small Hands Creating Hope?
A wonderful and diverse group of bloggers have come together to put together a book of crafts made by little hands with the intention of bringing HOPE to cancer patients and raising money for cancer research via The American Cancer Society.
The book is filled with many lovely projects but today I will share our contribution with you.
Handprint Sun Catcher Butterfly
This was super simple to make:
1. I took each girls handprints and made a butterfly shape -
using the thumbs on the two top prints for the antennas
2. After it dried, we added pom poms to make the body.
3. WFold in half and cut out symmetrical some shapes.
4. Add colored tissue paper to cover the holes.
Easy Peasy Handprint Butterfly Suncatcher!
