Felted Butterflies

Children love butterflies with their beautiful colored wings and graceful flight. This is a very easy, rewarding project.

Take a piece of felt (or square piece of tissue paper) and fold it in half.

Slip butterfly onto folded pipe cleaner and twist pipe cleaner in place leaving some length for antennas.
Slip some beads onto antennas

Owen loved making his butterfly.

While we were crafting we sang the song:
"Fly like a butterfly, fly like a butterfly
fly like a a butterfly in the sky!"

Once we were done we hung our beautiful insects on our seasonal wreath. The children often look up and sing the song! The wreath hangs from the ceiling over our kitchen table. We decorate it with seasonal themes. It's an easy way to celebrate what's happening in our surroundings and the children love it.
