Later the next day, I discovered the motive for the crafty moment...He needed something to trap in a spider web. Lovely, spider trumps butterfly. Try not to picture the struggle like I did when I came across this by my bed -
I was so glad someone wanted to be crafty with me at the fair last weekend (Even though no one wanted to look at quilts, sewing,etc.) . They were making coffee filter butterflies at a kids station. Luke and C didn't even slow down to look. E picked up his felt pen in style and coloured away!
So quick instruction on these easy butterflies - color the coffee filter with regular markers (the more color the better). When finished, spray water on the entire filter (this blends the inks). Pinch together in the middle and wrap a pipe cleaner around it for the body, then turn the tops of the cleaner for the antennas.
