Finger Butterfly

To make a finger butterfly you'll need:

contact paper
tissue paper
permanent marker

I used this pattern for my butterfly. The first one we did I cut out the butterfly, peeled it and then let my daughter cut pieces of tissue paper to decorate it. When she was done we laid it on a square of contact paper and then cut it out again. We cut slits in the center and put a small scrap piece of contact paper through it to loop around my daughters finger.

For the second butterfly I cut out shapes and we attempted to make a symmetrical butterfly.

For our last one I used a permanent marker to decorate the butterfly on contact paper and then sandwiched an orange piece of tissue paper between two pieces of the contact paper.

Have fun!
