This month's crafts are from www.artfulparent.com.  


  • Watercolor paints 
  • Watercolor paper
  • Scissors
  • White or light colored crayons
  • Old fashioned clothespin
  • Glue
  • Thread


1. Cut the watercolor paper into butterfly shapes.

2. Draw designs on the wings of your butterfly, using the white oil pastels.

3. Paint over the entire butterfly with the watercolor paints.

4. Slip an old fashioned wooden clothespin over the center and glue in place (a hot glue gun works well) for the butterfly body.

5. For the mobile, tie thread around the body or head of the butterfly and attach the other end to a stick, an embroidery hoop, or just to the ceiling (as we did).
