Earth Day Craft: Beautiful Butterflies
Let your kids raid your pantry and laundry closet, instead of your wallet, to make these bright butterflies for Spring.
* Coffee Filters
* Watercolor Paints
* Paper towel
* Googly eyes
* Clothes pins
Completely wet coffee filter and squeeze out extra water. Paint the entire coffee filter with watercolors.
Paint the entire clothespin with watercolors. They could also be colored with markers.
Allow coffee filter to completely dry. Gather the coffee filter into the middle of the clothes pin. Glue googly eyes to the top end.
To make butterflies fly, attach fishing line to them and hang from the ceiling. We hot glued mini clothes pins (with the metal spring) to the backs so our butterflies could sit on our spring branches.
