Create these shiny and bright aluminum foil butterflies with this super easy craft that includes very few materials. They would look great hung up as a mobile or made as a magnet for the fridge!

What you need:
– Cereal Box
– Glue Stick
– Pipe Cleaners
First you’ll make sure that your cereal box is unfolded and layed flat, so that your child can glue the aluminum foil on to the flat surface of the cereal box. When the glue dries you will need to draw the butterfly wings so that you’ll have an outline to cut out, or if your child can use scissors the cereal box is thin enough that they can cut it it out on their own.
And now we decorate! Take the sharpies and create some fun patterns or if they want to get really creative they add some jewels and glitter We let the sharpies dry for a few minutes and then added the pipe cleaner to form the body, by wrapping it around the foil/cardboard. And finally we added beads to the antenna for the finishing touch!
