Activity name:
Beautiful Butterflies

Materials needed:
Clear contact paper
Black construction paper
Construction paper (any bright color)
1" tissue squares (variety of colors)
Black pipe cleaner
2 wiggle eyes
Glue or glue stick

Cut two pieces of contact paper into a number 8 shape (wings).  Cut out a long oval from the black construction paper (body).  The size is determined by the size of the 8.  Cut two circles from any color paper the size of the two halves of the 8 shape.  Cut out the center of each circle leaving about a 1/2" to 1" border.  These will be the frames for the wings.

Carrying out the activity:
Peel off the backing to the contact paper.  Add the frames. 

Have the children fill in the middle of each wing with tissue paper squares.  When they are done, place the oval in the middle of the two circles that make up the 8 shape. 

Then, place the second contact paper 8 shape over the already decorated one.  Be sure the sticky side faces the side that has been decorated.  Cut a pipe cleaner in half and glue to the top of the oval shape.  Add two wiggle eyes.

Cut off any excess contact paper around the wing edges.
