Nature Findings Butterflies

Nature Findings Butterflies

My kids are always collecting things in the yard! This was a great activity for them to put all those findings to work. I love how beautiful creations made from nature can be.

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. nature findings
  1. The kids searched the yard for different materials that they thought would make a good butterfly. This kept them busy and working together for quite some time.

  2. They brought their findings over to the flat ground and got to work putting their butterflies together. It was fun to hear them chat about what would make good wings and help each other sort through the piles of leaves and twigs.

  3. Their little butterflies came out great. They moved on from here, creating all sorts of things including pictures of themselves (those were by far my favorite). Of course, my boy had to make a monster!
