Butterfly Craft

It’s craft time up in here!  I love craft time.  I try to use limited instructions and I love seeing what my kids create.  Today we made butterflies.

To make these you’ll need tissue paper, scissors, paints, brushes, markers, clothes pins, pipe cleaners and glue sticks.

You can either paint the clothes pin:

Or use markers:

Next, cut your tissue paper in half:

Then in half again:

Then, fold the tissue paper squares in the middle of the square as you would  a fan:

Now, stuff the middle of the tissue paper “fan” into the “mouth” of the clothes pin (this is where you could use a little glue to hold the wings in place):

Then add the pipe cleaner and wrap it around for antenna:
