When Little Miss decided she wanted a butterfly party, we had to get all the butterflies we could find. I found wooden butterflies at the Dollar Tree; there were 16 wooden butterflies in a package for $1.00. I had no idea what we were going to do with them, but of course with a bargain like that, who can refuse? We also picked up some wooden flowers while we were at it.
I ended up using the idea from the coffee filter flowers found here.

The kids colored first with water color markers....

...then sprayed them with water.

We made some into magnets...
....and for the others we mounted them onto popsicle sticks and turned them into decorations for the Easter plants we gave as gifts. A quick easy way to personalize the plants. I also sprayed them with sealer to prevent them from running and fading if they get wet.
