Spring Butterfly

Welcome Back!
We're counting down the days until Spring arrives - and I know we're not alone! :) We decided to make butterfly's today. This is an easy and fun project for the kids.
What you need:
Pipe cleaners
Coffee filters
1) Fold a coffee filter in half and cut out the shape of half of a butterfly wing. Open it up and cut a small hole in the center to slide the pipe cleaner threw.
2) Fold the pipe cleaner in half, and grip the un-joined ends about half an inch down and twist to form antennas
3) Slide the wings onto the body of the butterfly, and there you have it!
Come back soon for more crafty fun!

Clothes Pin Alligators

Welcome Back!

We just got back from a vacation in Florida where we visited a crocodile park. I thought the kids would enjoy this project a lot.

What you need:

Wooden Clothes Pins

Markers or paint

Pipe cleaner

Googly eyes or a black marker

Craft glue

1) Paint or color the clothes pins your desired color (Austin wanted his brown and green). To make the inside of the mouth for the gator, color or paint pink on the inside gripping points (see the photo above)

2) Fold the pipe cleaner in half, and then in half again and separate into the "legs", so it will sort of look like an X - glue this inside the gator's mouth and then shape into feet

3) Glue on googly eyes, or color them on with a black marker.

Thanks for Visiting!

I hope you enjoyed this craft. I will be posting another later this week.
