Glue the craft eyes and small mouth (from the red felt) onto the butterfly.

Step 8:

With the red magic marker, draw four heart shapes on the butterfly wings.

Step 9:

Glue the magnet onto the back of the Mother’s Day Preschool Photo Magnet. Allow to dry and wrap up as a wonderful Mother’s Day gift for your preschooler’s mommy. When Mother’s Day arrives, she can display on her refrigerator along with her preschooler’s other handmade magnets!
