momstown loves crafts that kids of all ages can do - and this butterfly stained glass is a great example!
What you need:
- Construction paper
- Tissue paper scraps
- Glue (glue stick is best instead of white glue)
Glue tissue paper scraps along the holes on the reverse side. Aim for symmetry here too if you really want it to be true to a butterfly's design.
Hang in a window and let the sun shine in! Make a perfect spring decoration and a great way to teach kids about symmetry. Or, look at a book to introduce the life cycle of a butterfly - they will be entralled!
