Kids Crafts: Clothespin Butterfly

Now that we are celebrating the spring, we made clothespin butterflies with Defne.
You need
a few paper towels
watercolours to decorate
a few clothespins
pipe cleaners

Defne decorated the paper towels with the paint brush using the watercolours. We then waited for them to dry.

Then we folded paper accordion style back and forth on itself like a fan and pinched paper in center with clothespin  for butterfly.
And then wrap the pipe cleaner around the head of clothespin for the antennae.
Voila! Very pretty and my daughter loves playing with it.
