Make your own Flutterby butterflies
Here's what to do
Print out the template, cut out the butterflies and colour them in.
(You can colour first and then cut if that's easier!)
Fold each one in half and press down along the fold.
Take a blob of plasticine or bluetack and the stick you found - side note, you could have fun searching for just the 'right' sticks for this activity! Put the plasticine on the end and make a groove in the top.
Place the fold of the butterfly into the groove and press the plasticine together to attach the two items firmly.
Gently open the wings of the butterfly and you're ready to fly! Repeat with the other butterfly and stick to make 2. Move the stick up and down and your butterfly should flap it's wings.
Here's a short video to walk you through it.
We've made a little butterfly bonus for this activity. Here's an extra colouring sheet with LOTS of butterflies for you to colour. You can leave them as they are or cut them all out. Why not decorate your windows with them or stick them on the fridge. I am sure you can think of lots of fun ideas to help add a bit of colour to your home.
