Last week was a pretty busy birthday week. When you’re little it seems like you get more then one birthday. We went to an amusement park on his actual birthday, then a celebration at his daycare, we made some Butterfly treats for all the kids there. And finally his actual party, a picnic with family en friends in the playground. I found the butterflies on Pinterest here.
And this is our version.
– some paint
– wooden cloth pins
– googly eyes
– pipe cleaners
– ziplock bags
– some snacks to fill them with, we went with fruit (’cause it’s healthy and all)
We painted the wooden cloth pins, this is something you can easily do together. Mini and I had a lot of fun.
Then we glued on the googly eyes together. I handled the glue of course…
After that we put the pipe cleaners through the little round metal holes on the sides of the cloth pins.
Bend them upwards and curl the ends.
It’s also possible to fasten the pipe cleaners by putting them in the clip of the cloth pins. I preferred this way, because the butterflies remain almost intact after the treat is gone and you can reuse them.
The last step is the filling of the ziplock bags with the chosen treats.
Pinch the bag together in the middle and fasten them with the cloth pins.
