    Mother's Day
    By Julie

    I found a really cute idea. I think it's cute.
    Here's what you do.....

    Butterfly Handprint and poem:

    1. Paint from top of middle finger to bottom of
    palm black -- butterfly's body
    2. Paint palms on both sides (discuss symmetry)
    another color
    3. Paint thumb and pinky another color
    4. Pain other fingers left another color
    5. Press the painted hand onto white construction
    paper. Other finger can move to form wings
    Keep middle finger still (body)
    6. Add an antennae with markers when paint dries
    7. Cut out butterfly and mount on contrasting
    piece of construction paper with this poem:

    This isn's just a Butterfly
    As you can plainly see.
    I made it with my hand
    Which is apart of me.
    It comes with lots of Love
    Especially to say
    I hope you have a very
    Happy Mother's Day

    I hope you like this idea. It seemed quite appropriate to me for fourth graders so I am using it as well.
    Good Luck!!
