I collect toilet paper rolls like a mad woman…
time to pull out a Springtime craft that will utilize my stash.
Enter the toilet paper roll butterfly!!!!
To make your own you will need:
toilet paper rolls
paint and brushes, (any colours you so wish)
twigs, (one thick one and two thin bits for antennae)
glue gun and glue sticks
creative enthusiastic helpers
To begin cut your toilet paper roll into 4 pieces.
Bend these at both ends so they form a "wing" shape...
To begin we painted our twig bodies and antennae black…this is optional…you can leave them plain.
Then paint some fancy designs on your "wings". We did rainbows, polka dots…
we painted the inside of the "wings" as well.
Now let it dry…
Then glue it all together…glue the antennae onto the twig body
and then the wings onto the sides.
It should look something like this!
This was a great rainy day craft that channeled our creativity and LOVE of butterflies and Spring!
Not to mention it was easy to do, even for the littlest amongst us.
Bring on the butterflies!
