Cardboard Butterfly

Cardboard Butterfly

Posted 2014-09-03 by Stephanie follow
This is a great spring craft for the kids. Make some pretty butterflies using some cardboard, paint, pipe cleaner and imagination to bring some colours to dull walls or doors.



Time: 15 minutes and additional drying time
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
  • Cardboard (I used cereal boxes)
  • Pipe cleaners of different colours
  • Watercolours/ paint and brushes
  • Scissors
  • Compass
  • Sticky tape



  • Method
  • Using a compass, make two big circles (around 20cm diameter), and cut around the edges.



  • Fold circles in half and make an outer line near the crease.
  • Cut along the lines and you will end up with four flaps.



  • Paint or decorate as desired and let dry.



  • To make a butterfly, tape two flaps and circle the middle with a pipe cleaner.
  • Cut another piper cleaner in half and gently insert in between to make the antennae.



  • Place on walls or doors.
