After we made the tiger and giraffe, we needed some more crafts to make.  Grandma A. suggested we make a butterfly!  This was perfect, as Little Guy has also been loving the butterfly enclosure at the zoo!

To do this, I decided to use clear contact paper and tissue paper.  I cut random shapes from the tissue paper and put them in an old yogurt lid to keep them together.

Little Guy seemed to enjoy it!  This is only the second time we have use the contact paper, and he was fascinated by the stickiness!

All done!
The completed butterfly took us about 3 days.  Little Guy would stick a few pieces of tissue paper on, then would be ready to move on to the next activity.  I would pull the backing back over the butterfly while we were not using it, and tape it down.  This worked well, especially since we did it on his picnic table that is just used for play.

The finishing touch was the googly eyes!  Little Guy is fascinated by them, so I used the hot glue gun to attach them to the outside.

What animals are you making?
