Paper Towel Butterflies
How to Make Paper Towel Butterflies
We made one of these paper towel butterflies on the weekend and it was so much fun!
What you need:
4 x bowls
1/2 cup water
a pipe cleaner cut in half
Lay out the four bowls and distribute the water evenly.
Add 2 – 3 drops of different food colouring to each bowl and mix with water.
Fold your paper towel square into a small square (4 folds).
Dip each corner of the paper towel square into the coloured water.
Unfold the paper towel and allow to dry.
Once dry, concertina fold the square (on diagonal) and wrap a pipe cleaner around, leaving enough at the top for two antenna.
This was so much fun! Leave us a message in the comments if you try it yourself we’d love to hear what you thought of this activity, or alternatively post a picture of your paper towel butterflies on our Facebook Page.
