Butterfly footprint painting activity

Paint your little explorer's feet with bright colours and make a butterfly.

Step into nature and help your mini Nature Detective to get creative!

  • Every new beautiful picture is totally unique to your little one
  • Layer their footprints with different colours – the more the better
  • Name your new breed of butterfly; how about the Messius Toesis?

Why not create a new print every month and watch your family of butterflies grow? Cut them out and stick them together to make their very own butterfly garden.
