All you need
- heavy paper
- paper roll
- pipe cleaner
- marker or pen
- clothes pin (optional)
How to do it
Fold the paper in half and draw the shape of butterfly wings, cut it out. I let my oldest practice her cutting skills, but did the cutting for my other daughter.
Decorate the wings and body. We used glued on polka dots cut from paper, but scissors or colouring would be fun too!
Wrap the paper roll in paper and glue it on. Attach the pipe cleaner at the top for antennae, don’t forget to give them a little curl at the top! Draw on eyes and a mouth and now you are ready to attach the roll to the wings!
Once the glue dried on the body, I thought it would be nice to attach a clothes pin and let the butterfly rest on flowerpots and wherever else it could clip!
Have fun and see how creative your little ones can get!
