Butterfly from Toilet Paper

3 Dec

Butterfly crafts are always fun and full of colors.

And this particular one is my favorite because it enhanced the beauty of my living room/Ria's play area.

Make 2 folds in each of the large kitchen/toilet paper and get your toddler/preschooler to dip the sides of the paper into each bowl of food colors.

Open the papers and leave them on a cardboard to dry.

Once the papers are dry, fold them like japanese fans (shown in the picture) and tie the pipe cleaner in the center.

Repeat this for all the paper and your butterflies are ready. You can tie a thread to each of them and hang anywhere you like.

Early Learning goes a long way in your child’s education and upbringing. Amongst the very important things to learn for a toddler or preschooler are hand-eye coordination, 5 senses, practice fine and gross motor skills, balance, and muscle development. A lot of this can be practiced at home with crafts and activities under adult’s supervision. Playing with colors, pots and pans, brushes, sponges, glue; reading books, pretend play, all seem like child’s play to us but are actually helping your toddlers/preschoolers develop their minds and bodies.

Please make sure all the activities mentioned in this blog are done under adult supervision. If your children are still putting things in their mouths, then avoid activities with small particles that can cause chocking hazards. Also, all steps in the articles that involves a pencil, knife, pair of scissors or any sharp objects should be performed by an adult.
