For our Cardboard Roll Handprint Butterfly Craft you will need cardstock in a variety of colors. We used cardstock with dots on them for decoration, but you could use colors then decorate as desired, too. The rest of the supplies include clean cardboard rolls, acrylic paints, small googly eyes, pipe cleaners, black sharpie, tape, glue, and scissors.

Begin by tracing a little handprint on one side of a sheet of cardstock.
Fold the cardstock in half and cut out, so there are 2 handprints.
Paint the cardboard roll in your choice of color. Let dry.
Glue the two handprints together, overlapping.
Then glue the cardboard roll in the center of the handprints.
Cut a pipe cleaner in half. Bend one half into a V and curl the ends.
Tape the pipe cleaner to the inside of the cardboard roll. Also adhere googly eyes.
Use a black sharpie to draw a simple mouth.
