After 2 days of rain the daughter was really tearing her hair out – or was that mine? I had plenty of work to do, but figured I best take some time out to entertain her. Once again inspired by ABC Play School They were making paper butterflies to blow in the wind, so I thought we’d just extend on that idea.
What you’ll need; tissue paper (crepe paper would probably work just as well) pipe cleaners, scissors, plastic ribbon and a coat hanger (not pictured)
Cut squares or rectangles out of the paper and twist in the middle – as demonstrated by Miss 3.
Twist a pipe cleaner around the middle. This is not entirely necessary, but I liked the addition of an extra colour and texture, as well as the antennae look it created.
Attach your string or ribbon, keep attaching as many as you would like. We just did 3 on each string x 3 strings.
And there you have it. Took less than 10 minutes to create and she thinks they are awesome.
