Butterfly Sun Catcher

This was a really simple butterfly craft that was a lot of fun.

Here’s what you’ll need: contact paper, scissors, marker and tissue paper.

Have your child rip the tissue paper into little pieces.  It’s great for developing those fine motor muscles and toddlers love to rip things apart.

Cut your contact paper in half and then have your child put tissue paper on one half of the contact paper.

After your child finishes putting the tissue paper on, put the other piece of contact paper on the back of the 1st piece to keep all the tissue paper inside.  Then I folded it in half and drew a kind-of butterfly shape.

Cut it out and hang your sun catcher on a window.

  3. My son loves doing these types of crafts!! 🙂 Looks like Hailey loved it too. I have a question for you though…in some of the other crafts Hailey is wearing a paint smock kind of thing with long sleeves…where did you get that? I have been searching for one like that for Tate, but I can’t seem to find any anywhere…

  4. What a great idea!
