BUTTERFLY MOBILE

Monarch butterfly cardboard mobile kids crafts by Mini Mad Things

For this project we had been thinking about endangered animals and had researched the Monarch Butterfly. They undergo an amazing migration from Canada to Mexico. When a butterfly leaves Canada it is it's grand children that arrive in Mexico!

MATERIALS: Cardboard, paint, string and a stick.

We also made printing blocks to print our butterfly shapes but you don't have to do this, you could just paint them. For the printing blocks we used a block of wood and glued on cord in a butterfly shape.

TUTORIAL: Paint your cardboard orange and print your butterflies in black.

Take 2 butterflies, put them back to back and tie them together with the string. Add a knot to your 2 strings and then add your next butterflies making a long garland.

We made 3 strings of butterflies then attached them to a stick at the top. Make a loop of string in the middle so you can hang up your mobile.
