There is something special about seeing the first butterfly of spring! Since we might have to wait a bit longer before that happens, we wanted to share this fun and easy butterfly craft, where magazine pages give the butterflies their beautiful colors!
What you need:
~ One pipe cleaner
How to make it:
~ Start by folding each square accordion style, diagonally, starting from the corner. Folding in smaller folds will give you a bit more flexibility in the wings. You might need to help your younger child in making the folds, or get them started and let them finish.
~ ...then I realized that it made more sense to have the big square on the top. It looked much more butterfly-ie that way.
~ Curl the pipe cleaner on top to make the antennae.
~ The butterfly can be worn on a finger, or held by the loop to swish and fly. So easy to make, and the colour combinations are endless!
