Clothes Pin Butterfly Magnet Craft For Kids
Spring is such a wonderful time of the year. It’s lovely to see the flowers blooming, see the green grass and spend time in the fresh air. I also love the lighter evenings.
Spring is a great time to go on a bug hunt, read about animals, bugs and small creatures and get crafting. Today on the blog we have a fun tutorial on how to make a clothes pin butterfly. I hope you enjoy.
Either way it’ s a fun activity and one I’m sure you will enjoy making with the kids. This is a colourful and easy to make craft.

How To Make A Butterfly Magnet
Begin by choosing a colourful selection of 1 inch and 1.5 inch pom poms and pipe cleaners.
Lay your clothespin flat with the clip facing up.
Bend your pipe cleaners in half and then cut your pipe cleaners at the bend.
Use two pipe cleaner halves to create the butterfly’s top wings.
Use two of the pipe cleaner sections to create the bottom wings.
Glue your top and bottom butterfly wings onto the back of the clothespin.
I used the metal portion of the clothespin as a guideline.
I glued the top wings right above it and the bottom wings right below it.
Take the last two sections of your pipe cleaners and make a loop at the top of them to create an antennae shape.
Glue them on top of the butterfly’s pom pom head.
Your butterfly is ready to take flight to a fridge near you!
