This little gal is quick, easy, and fun! A great children's project.
Kids will love it when they get to use their feet to make these cute butterfly prints. No matter the age, all feet will get a tickle from the paint being applied to their footsies. So much fun! Approximate Time: Supplies: Instructions: Set up work area with newspaper to cut down on the mess that could happen with this project. Paint the bottom of one foot of the child. For really young children, this works well when they are sitting in the high chair. Press the foot of the child onto the paper on the opposite side to make the first footprint. For example, if you are painting the right foot first, place it on the left side of the paper. Clean the foot already used and paint the bottom of the other foot of the child. Press their foot onto the paper to create the footprint that makes up the other half of the butterfly. Allow to dry. Add a body and antennas if you wish.

A very simple project kids can make to decorate their rooms. Approximate Time: 15 - 20 minutes Supplies: holiday garland or shredded tissue paper plastic sandwich bag cellophane tape pipe cleaner aluminum foil glue string Instructions: Place some holiday garland or shredded tissue paper into a plastic sandwich bag. Fold the top of the bag over and seal it with cellophane tape. Gather the bag at the center, and wrap the center with a pipe cleaner to form the butterfly body. Twist the ends of the pipe cleaner together to form the antennae. Roll the ends of the antennae into small coils. Crumple small pieces of aluminum foil into two small balls and glue the balls to the pipe cleaner coils to finish the antennae. Attach a piece of string to the butterfly body so you can hang it from the ceiling or from a curtain rod.

Spring is here! I will be submitting different "buggy" crafts that my daughter and I worked on for her birthday party. This butterfly is made from paper that she painted.
These are cute little magnets that are a blast for the kids to make. They love spraying their artwork with water and watching the colors soften and blend.
This stick craft butterfly is fun to wave in the air like it is flying through your house. Or, use the stick as a plant stake to add something extra to an inside potted plant.
Another "buggy" spring craft! These butterflies are so cute and so easy to make. Show them off on your refrigerator for lot's of comments from admirers!
This cute butterfly has pom-poms as a body and as decorations on its wings. The wings are made from paper and the antennas are made from chenille stems and beads.
