Work on pincer grasp, finger strength, fine motor control, and cutting while creating a colorful butterfly using clothespins and construction paper.
Take one of your clothespins and paint it with colors. This will be the butterfly body.
To make the wings, take some colored construction paper and fold it in half.
Draw a pair of wings on the folded side of the paper, and cut around them using the scissors.
Unfold the wings and you will have two sets that are exactly the same.
Draw colorful lines and patterns over the wings.
Assemble Everything Together
Pinch open the clothes peg and glue the wings onto the top prong.
It is best to clip the clothes peg onto something so that it doesn’t get glued shut.
Decorate the body of the butterfly with your buttons and beads, and stick the googly eyes onto the top of the peg.
