Butterflies are a wonderful sign of warmer weather and sometimes you feel crafty and need a breath of spring time. I pulled out some construction paper and markers and had the boys help me make some paper butterflies to hang up in our picture window, creating an Indoor Butterfly Garden.
What You Need:
- construction paper
What You Do:
Take a piece of 8 1.2 x 11 construction paper and fold it in half.
Draw butterfly shapes along the fold
Cut out the shapes
Lay them out to decorate
Quite unlike me - i left the kids to do their own thing. . .i didn't try to "help" or take over or make them "perfect". . . when we all finished, we had quite a colorful collection of butterflies.
It turned out beautifully and makes me smile every time I look at them.
