Pinned it, Did It – B is for Butterflies

Ah, what letter B week would be complete without clothespin butterflies.

I showed my children last year how to tie dye coffee filters, and they’ve done it several times since then.  The only problem is, once they dry, we don’t know what to do with them.  Solution:  http://pinterest.com/pin/234961305529405816/.   Five of the children participated (on their own initiative) in this, between the ages of 10 and 3.

We made these butterflies using three coffee filters for each one, then stuck a magnet on the back.

Yes, one of the many luxiouries of living in a converted mobile home (as she rolls her eyes) are the metal doors which are perfect for magnetic butterflies.
