Footprint Butterfly Flower Pots

I had seen some adorable footprint butterflies on Pintrest so I knew I wanted to do them with my 2 children.  


I did not buy flower pots for this activity.  I reused some containers that we got from Wal-Mart when we ordered some food to-go.  :)  


After we cleaned to containers I put some blue paint inside and attached the lid and let my daughter shake it around till it was covered.  


After the inside paint dried I took the kids outside and tried my best to get some cute foot prints.  Selah was giggling when I painted her feet because she is so ticklish.  Then Titus was crying because low and behold he is afraid of paint.  So a fun activity had a lot of drama involved but I still think they turned out adorable.  :)  


This was also a present for Mother's Day... Nana is coming to visit us in June so shhhhh... "it's still a secret."   :)

Those are so cute! Now I wish I had the paints and the pots:) I bet your littles had lots of fun! I love having those fun times with kids. They are few and far apart as far as I am concerned. Cherish the moments! Come by and visit us.
What a great idea - wonder if my girls would go for having painted feet...
