Supplies to make one butterfly:

What you do:

  1. Glue four pom-poms together. Allow to dry.

  2. While the pom-poms are drying, cut one pipe cleaner in half and bend each half to form the large part of each wing. Take the second pipe cleaner and cut it into thirds. Take two of the pieces you just cut and form each into the smaller part of each wing. Cut another pipe cleaner into quarters and take two pieces to form the antennae.
