Full of the joys of spring and with a lovely blue sky overhead we decided we wanted to bring some colour to the trees…
So we made some beautiful butterflies…
Here’s how we did it..
We washed out some empty milk cartons.
I then carefully cut the carton into strips and drew butterflies on them for the kids to carefully cut out..
Once we had our shapes we coloured our butterflies in with permanent marker pens..
They looked great! We stuck some gems to some of them..
We finished by poking a paper clip through each one to hang in the trees.
We then set about hanging them in the trees..
To follow more of our daily fun, frugal & magical memory making ideas and activities during a childhood that’s fleeting you can find us on Facebook.

How pretty! What a great way to add some colour to the garden when there is not much around!
These are so lovely! What a great way to upcycle 😀
Thank you. It was one way to get the kids drinking milk. 🙂
