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!
Amazing Balancing Butterfly Craft
Coloured Paper Card board from cereal boxes (or any other box) 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.
Cut and paste onto the card board. Cut again.
Decorate the butterfly.
Paste a coin each on the back of the top wings.
The butterfly should be able to balance itself now.
It can balance almost anywhere.
Your kids will have a whole lot of fun balancing the butterfly everywhere!
You can also make a balancing bird instead of a butterfly.
It’s just as beautiful and fun to play with. This is a great craft to make at any parties 🙂
Kate Gribble of An Amazing Child shared this beautiful Paper Towel Butterfly Mobile 😀
This activity uses paper towel and food colouring (paint). It is perfect for toddlers. The paint spreads beautifully across the paper and once dry, can be cut into any shape you like. This mobile was made by Kate and her 27 month old son for her 11 week old daughter.
