Butterfly PreSchool Snack

Last week I had to bring in snack for my little one's pre-school friends.

I wanted to do something fun and I knew they would be reading Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar, {so of course I searched Pinterest for some ideas:) } and ended up with a cute little butterfly snack!  I think they loved it!!

Want to make your own?  Here is what you will need:

Snacks - I used grapes and goldfish
Snack Size plastic bags
pipe cleaners
Mod Podge
Scrapbook Paper

I started out by cutting out the paper and using Mod Podge to adhere them to the clothespins (one for each child) in the same manner as I had done here.

I slide the pipe cleaner thru the hole of the clothespin, like so...

Using a pencil I curled the end of the pipe cleaners.

Finally, I added my snacks to the bag.  I put the goldfish in first and then clipped on the clothespin before adding the grapes to the "other side".

Here is my little butterfly army

Aren't they cute;)

Linking up to these great parties:)
