This is a really fun craft that doesnt require any fancy materials. You’ll most likely have everything already at home. It’s also ‘magical’ and I’m sure your kids will love it!

Glue
Coins

Fold a coloured paper half. Draw one half of a butterfly making sure the top wings are way above the butterfly head to enable it to balance. This is also a good time to teach your child about the centre of gravity.

OK so it’s the school holidays and I just wanted to do something different with my entry. Hehe. This is not my usual entry. There is no step-by-step instructions but just comic of my two kids because I’ve posted a step-by-step instructions on how to fold an origami whale back in 2009.
