This project uses wonderful butterflies that the kids have made and turns them into this really fun mobile.
What you need
To make the butterflies you will need some paint and paper.
Have the children place the paint drops into the middle of the paper and fold it into half to create a butterfly.
Once these butterflies are dried have the children cut them out and glue them to lengths of string.
Tie the string the to coat hanger and your finished.
What you need
Clear packing Tape
I printed out pictures (photos or graphics) on medium weight everyday photo paper (semi-gloss) (you have to print 2 regular and then flip 2 for the back side. (here’s where my OCD kicks in – I always print 6 instead of 4 in case I make a mistake) covered the pictures with clear packing tape then covered the back with duct tape for stability Then I put double face scrapbook tape on the back of the flipped pictures before I cut them out (it’s really really thin tape) You can use almost any type of strong glue if you want but this is the neatest fastest option. Then I cut them out Then I make as small a hole as possible in the top – I used my burny tool but you could probably use a thumbtack. Then I colored the edges black with a paint marker. (I tried Sharpies but they bled onto the earring) then you add beads and wire and embellish them whatever way you want and Voila! You can use any picture you want. I’ve made teddies, butterflies, angels, Jack skellington, Larry the cucumber (don’t you just love VeggieTales?) (of course you are only allowed to sell the ones made with copyright free images…)
