How to make a butterfly clothespin craft for kids.

Disclosure: I'm required to disclose a relationship between my site and Blueprint Social. This could include Blueprint Social providing me w/content, product, access or other forms of payment.

I'm very quickly becoming a huge fan of ConsumerCrafts.com, and it's not just because they send me craft supplies, although I do really like that. 

This past week I received a fabulous surprise on my door step from them, a box containing all kinds of craft goodies. 

Before I tell you all about the amazing Pin It To Win It contest they have going on right now, I want to share a quick spring craft project with you. I couldn't resist delving straight into the box and making something special for Miss M who has been sick the past couple of days.

Butterfly Craft

She absolutely loved these little butterflies. The entire project took no more than 30 minutes, and to see her smile, it was worth every second.

What you need:

  • Wood Flat Pins 2.5"
  • Tillie Dot Spotted 6×6" Card Stock
  • 2" Black Finish Eye Pins
  • Glue Gun

I used the kids Play-Doh butterfly cutter, tracing around it on the back of the card stock with a pencil.  I then cut it out, and attached it to the wood pin using hot glue. Before the glue hardened, I slotted the eye pins into the back between the butterfly wings and wood pin.

Wouldn't they make a lovely spring break activity, or a fun craft project for a garden party.
