butterfly craft

at our home-ed group this month we did arts and crafts, something that almost every child enjoys, so its a safe option. the under sevens made butterflies out of loo roll and paper plates....

the tiny ones got on with their own thing...... woohoo

and the older girls made a more sophisticated butterfly, which was decorated with gems and other sparkly things, the girls had a ball, mashallah, the butterflies were attached to a clothes peg, and finally some magnets were attached to the peg to make a great fridge magnet/photo frame (the photo can be placed in the peg).

the older boys made dragonflies instead of these girlie butterflies (no pictures, sorry).

it's great this group of ours. it's not just a place where the kids go to do crafts once a month, it's a place where we can go and meet other like minded women, share ideas, ask questions, get tips, drink coffee, laugh, chat, need i go on?
