Bright and Beautiful Butterflies

You'll Need

Two sheets of any color construction paper,one styrofoam ball ( 3 or 4 inch diameter or larger),five colored pipe cleaners,a pencil or pen,two wood popsicle sticks,glue,assorted colored glitter,scissors,two small buttons or two craft
Draw butterfly wing shapes on each piece of colored construction, making your wings as big or as small as you like. Decorate each wing by drawing a squiggly line with the glue and then sprinkling glitter on top of the glue. Be as creative as you like! Set aside the wings and allow them to dry completely. Once the wings have dried, glue one wing onto one Popsicle stick. Leave about one inch of the Popsicle stick uncovered from the wing. Let dry completely. Glue rolly eyes or buttons or draw "eyes" on the Styrofoam ball. Allow them to dry completely. Holding the pen or pencil in one hand, wrap one pipe cleaner around the pen or pencil, leaving one inch at the bottom uncoiled. Repeat with one more pipe cleaner. Insert pipe cleaner "antenna" above eyes in styrofoam ball. Cut remaining three pipe cleaners in equal halves. Insert pipe cleaner "legs" in two rows of three to the underside of styrofoam ball, bending approximately one inch of the end pipe cleaner so as to create "feet." Stick the uncovered ends of the popsicle sticks into the back of the styrofoam ball as to create your bright, beautiful butterflies wings! Enjoy! For extra fun, have the children color the styrofoam ball using magic markers before inserting anything in to it!
