Plastic Bag Butterflies
One activity that little hands enjoy is cutting paper up. In fact, you may find tiny pieces of paper all over your home if your child gets their hands on a pair of scissors. Why not take that love of cutting and put it to good use?
Get some colourful paper that your child can cut up. They can also use tissue paper, color cellophane, or shiny wrapping paper. Put some of the scraps into a plastic sandwich bag, but don’t overfill it. Gather the bag in the middle and fold a pipe cleaner in half and twist it. This is the body of your butterfly. Twist the ends to create antenna.
