I saw butterfly snacks on Pinterest, and knew I had to make them for my daughter’s Daisy Troop! How cute are these?!
To make them, use sandwich size baggies – fill it with about 1/4 grapes, making sure to keep them on one side of the bag. Fill the other half with crackers (goldfish, Ritz, Cheez-Its, etc). Use a decorated clothes pin to cinch the bag up the middle, folding back the closure.
To decorate the clothes pins, you need the following:
- regular sized clothes pins
- Color Box ink pad in Twilight
- Silver chenille pipe cleaner, cut into 4″ pieces
- Tacky glue, pen or marker
All I did was firmly swipe the clothes pin across the multi-colored ink pad. Pinch the pipe cleaner to form a V shape. Using the thin point of a pencil, wrap the edges of the pipe cleaner to form curls in the antennas. Use the tacky glue to adhere the antennas to the clothes pin. Let it dry for a few hours (or overnight if you can). Draw a smiley face, or better yet, if you have small googly eyes, glue those on : )
That’s it! Your little ones will love these and it’s totally worth the minimal effort!
As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
