Hello! Thank you Kasey for inviting me to share on your blog. I really appreciate the chance to share with your thoughtful readers! If you all are not familiar with me, I blog at Sidetracked Sarah and if you haven’t guessed, I’m just a bit sidetracked!
There are so many projects that I’d like to be doing each day and only so much time, especially as the mother of 6 young children. I have decided to start trying to do crafts with my little ones more often in order to make our homeschool days a little more exciting and fun. Of course, the crafts we do are great for all ages, but the toddlers and younger elementary aged children especially enjoy the crafts we’ve been doing.
Here’s what you need:
- Paint (we used white)
- Construction Paper (2 different colors, one for the background, one for the body of the butterfly)
- Pipe Cleaners for the antenna
- Googly Eyes or Markers to draw the eyes on with
- Glitter if you’d like to decorate the wings (we didn’t do this step)
Cut a pipe cleaner in half. Then, fold it in half and twist each end around a pencil to create a spiral shape. Glue it down to the top of the butterfly head. Draw or glue on your eyes.
Hang it up to show off to anyone who comes to your home the craftiness your child possesses! 🙂 I’m sharing another butterfly craft that my 12 year old daughter made up on my blog today. Please visit me here to see it!
