Whilst we were on the topic of butterflies I had the idea of using some coloured doilies for a butterfly craft. It's very simple and easy for even very young children to get involved with.
lolly pop sticks
Start off by cutting triangles out of the top and bottom of the doilie.
Next glue a lolly pop stick in the centre to make the butterfly's body.
Finally get creative gluing some sequins on the butterfly!
I also made these little butterflies from the triangular bits I cut out. I stuck 2 together and then glued some sequins in the middle to form the body. After we stuck them to the children's wardrobe to brighten it up a bit. They were very pleased with that.
