Imaginary Clothespin Flying Butterfly

Imaginary Clothespin Flying Butterfly - pink and purple paper and clothespin butterfly
If your toddler loves butterflies, this would be a fun craft to make together. Not only is it a fun craft, but your toddler can play with their butterfly and get in some indoor exercise (since it's been raining all day). I did not think she would have this much fun with this imaginary butterfly, but she did and ran around with the butterfly as if it was flying!
