Butterfly #1

 

Materials Needed:Butterfly

Craft sticks, construction paper, crayons, markers or paints, pipe cleaner, glue, scissors.

 

Instructions:

Take two craft sticks and cut in half. Glue the four pieces on top of each other so that the round ends are lined up with one another. Fold pipe cleaner in half and glue to the round end of the sticks to form the antennae. Take a sheet of construction paper and fold in half. From the side with the fold, carefully cut out one set of wings (they should look like the top half of a heart). Unfold and colour. Glue wings onto the top of the sticks.

 

Brian says:

“Glue a piece of magnet onto the back to use on your refrigerator.”

“Find pictures of different types of butterflies and copy their patterns and colors onto the wings.”
