Tissue Paper Butterfly

Today, was a perfect day to work on a wonderful craft idea. Sophia was excited to make some crafts, so I decided why not. Now, I have to put my thinking hat on. We are going to make a Tissue Paper Butterfly. This is a fun project where your little ones can use their fingers and create many beautiful projects. Now, let us start on our fun Tissue Paper Butterfly.
Tissue Paper (Any colors you want)
Construction Paper
Newspaper/or cloth

Get your construction paper and ask your little one what they want you to draw for them. If they want to draw something on their own, that will be great too. You can also use printables if you want, which might be easier on you, but Sophia wanted me to draw a butterfly, so I did.
Reach for the tissue paper and start cutting them into strips, then you cut them approximately into 2-inch squares.
Next, crumple the colorful tissue papers into balls. Sophia had a great time crumpling the tissue papers and wanted to keep doing that over and over again.
Then, get your butterfly drawing and apply some glue on top of it.
Grab your crumpled up tissue and glue them on the butterfly drawing. Repeat the process until the butterfly or drawing is fully covered.
Voila! Now, you have created beautiful project where your little once will love. Enjoy and I would love to read your wonderful comments!

Really cute!! I remember making something like this when I was a kid - so much fun and fairly easy to do! (not too much mess afterward either!) A++!
