Today we had a lot of fun with our snacks. When I saw this idea on Pinterest I just knew we would do this. Check out our butterfly snack bags made using things we had around the house: clothespins, markers, eye stickers, pipe cleaners, snack size ziplocs, and grapes and gold fish!
First the kids markered their clothespins.
Paint would have been a lot of fun too but I chose to keep it pretty simple. Next, they picked out their eyes from a huge sticker sheet that I picked up at a yard sale. I think I have over 500 eyes and I payed a nickel! Then they chose their pipe cleaners and we made antennae. I assembled the snack bags, we clipped on their butterflies and voila!
And of course, it was almost as fun eating them as it was making them!
A bit excited.
