just a petite post about a big butterfly. last year we made these little coffee filter butterflies, that i blogged about recently.
then we set it outside in the rain. (we kept ours out there too long -while we went to ballet class- and most of the color washed away. usually you can just remove it from the rain after about 5 minutes of getting soaked.)
once it was dry, N wanted to wear it.
then we gathered it in the center, paperclipped it, and attached some twisted pipe cleaners to the center for the butterfly’s body. now N’s playhouse (<– stay tuned) has a large lepidoptera friend in the window, catching the light.
you don’t have to go big to do this — regular, human-sized coffee filters will do.
