Bring the room to life with this beautiful easy-to-make DIY Giant Butterfly!

Using just a few simple materials, children can decorate their butterfly however they please with endless textures. An easy and fun crafts idea for children in your setting!

What you will need:

Gold or White Paper Plates 
2 Pipe Cleaners
2 Small Beads
Self Adhesive Plastic Jewels
Foam Stickers
Sticky Tape

How to make it:

  1. Take the paper plate and a pair of scissors. Cut out two triangles from the paper plate to make the butterfly wings. If using a white paper plate, feel free to paint it a desired colour and let it dry.
  2. Wrap two pipe cleaners around the middle of the wings to create antennae. Use sticky tape to secure the pipe cleaner ends behind the wings. Curl the ends of the antennae with a pencil then add a bead to each one to finish.
