Enjoy crafting with your kids, and making lots of great memories together!
I can remember making balancing butterflies just like these when I was a kid, and it was so much fun to watch my kids make balancing butterflies of their own! They are almost magical!
I love how my daughter Emily made very elaborate designs on her butterflies, and Clara’s were bright and colorful!
Next, flip the butterfly over, and use a bit of tape to attach some pennies to the wings as shown.
Place your finger under the butterfly’s head, and try balancing your beautiful butterfly on the tip of your finger!
They look so realistic, you may want to have your butterfly net nearby — just in case you happen to attract some real butterflies your way!
