First  you have to wet your watercolor paper and then start to play with the watercolor paint, making a colorful paint.Let the watercolor paper dry.

When it is dry cut a shape of a butterfly as you can see in the pictures, very easy. At that point we put some glue glitter to add some shine.

With your plastic spoon draw a face of the butterfly attach the wiggle eyes and decorate your plastic spoon. Then attach the chenille tinsel making the antenna and attach the spoon on the middle of the body of the butterfly with you double sided tape.

Recycled CD – DVD Making A Glitter Fish

Hi everybody.I hope that everybody is having a good week. Today we are going to incorporate a recycled material in our craft – an old CD. They say the remain in a land-fill for a million years. We think that in very young age it is good to teach our children the importance  of taking care of the environment. Incorporating recycled material in our activities is a good way to encourage them to creatively find ways of re-utilising old objects around the house or in the environment.

I found this lovely idea here:  EcoSuperior Environmental Programs – Recycled cd fish craft. ,we all have old CD or DVD  at home and I think is a good idea to recycle them making crafts.

For this craft you will need: some old CD  or DVD, Mod podge, glitter ( you can use any sparkling material to decorate them or you can use sharpie to draw the scales, some colored paper to make the fins, mouth and tale, scissors,scotch tape and wiggle eyes.

Apply some mod podge glue all around in the back of the CD and sprinkle some glitter on the glue.Then cut the fins,mouth and tale from the colored paper and attach with scotch tape.Now you can attach the wiggle eyes with glue.

When they dry you can even use them to decorate the children’s bedroom wall.
