Butterfly out of beads and pipe cleaners

Today we worked on our fine motor skills.  I got the idea from another blogger 

We used multi-colored pony beads and pipe cleaners.  Our cat, Tarzan, was very interested in this project ;)

It was a simple craft to do.  We used 3 pipe cleaners (2 for the wings and one for the antennas).  It took LO quite a while to string all the beads.  He really enjoyed the finished product.  He kept singing "fly like a butterfly, fly like a butterfly in the sky!" :)

With Spring approaching soon we plan on ordering caterpillar eggs and growing them into butterflies.  We did that last Spring and LO still talks about it. :)
