Full of the joys of spring and with a lovely blue sky overhead we decided we wanted to bring some colour to the trees…
So we made some beautiful butterflies…

Here’s how we did it..

We washed out some empty milk cartons.

I then carefully cut the carton into strips and drew butterflies on them for the kids to carefully cut out..

Once we had our shapes we coloured our butterflies in with permanent marker pens..

They looked great! We stuck some gems to some of them..

We finished by poking a paper clip through each one to hang in the trees.
