NO-MESS PAINTED BUTTERFLY CRAFT
This craft is perfect for spring rainy days. It’s especially popular with the preschool crowd, but older kids will enjoy it too! Wouldn’t these vibrant butterflies look cute tucked into a spring wreath or covering a classroom door?
Here’s what you need to make this No-Mess Painted Butterfly Craft:
- plastic sandwich bags
Open the plastic sandwich bags and pour a small amount of paint inside. Close the bag firmly, pressing out the extra air.
Invite your child to squish and spread the paint inside the bag. Be sure to cover the entire internal surface of the bag.
Last, wrap a pipe cleaner around the middle of the bag, creating the butterfly’s body and antennae.
The finished butterflies look beautiful hanging on the refrigerator or on the window as a suncatchers.
