Pipecleaner Butterfly Craft Welcome Back to Day Five of the 7 Day Craft Challenge! You’re almost done, and you’re doing great. Today we will be making a Pipe Cleaner Butterfly with your kids. Make a loop at one end of the pipe cleaner to keep the beads from slipping off. Let your child thread beads on each of the pipe cleaners.(Not too full to allow the pipe cleaner to be shaped.)Once all three are beaded it’s time to shape your butterfly craft. I did it for the preschooler, but older kids might want to do it themselves.Pick one pipe cleaner to be the body, one for the forewings, and one for the hind wings. Shape the wings into a w shape and attach to the body by twisting the center of the wings around the body.
