Last weeks challenge at Unplug Your Kids was Insect.
Easy for us.. my girls love insects!! we always have some sort of bug or lizard sitting in my tupperware... hmmmmmm ;)
First we made coffee filter butterflies - Seen on The Crafty Crow from Two straight lines I was happy to see this one using the cone filters as this is what I have, and I haven't used them because all the other filter butterflies use the round filters - I have seen this craft on the net for ages, but as I don't drink coffee, I have never seen these filters ever in my life, so had no idea about them.... but my husband picked me up some one day from the grocery store - cheap! like 40 for a couple of dollars!!
We used a medicine dropper to drop food colouring onto the filter.
We made a butterfly mobile
I saw some cute things made from a salt dough recipe on Whimsy Girl that reminded me of some lady bugs made out of plaster of Paris on Scribbit so we had to make some dough insects as well.
And lastly I saw this ant activity on No time for Flash cards a few weeks ago and had mentally filed it for another time and thought it would fit perfectly with this weeks challenge
Enjoy these insecty ideas!
