Autumn Butterflies

OK. One last butterfly craft. Are you ready?

This is a great one for autumn. We collected fall leaves and layered them between sheets of paper towel and pressed them under a stack of heavy books for two weeks.


Once the leaves were pressed and dried we arranged them into butterflies. The stems made great antennas.


We glued them together and picked our favorite one to be framed.


Have fun creating!
