Project of the Month ~ Confetti Butterflies

This project provides great small-motor practice for little hands! Thank you to StorkNet member ErinFiat for contributing this idea.

Confetti ButterflyMaterials Needed:

  • brightly colored tissue paper
  • sandwich size Ziploc baggies
  • dark colored, thick pipe cleaners


  1. Start by cutting the tissue paper into confetti pieces. This is a good opportunity to practice cutting.

  2. Fill the baggie about halfway full with confetti. Then seal the top.

  3. Get those pipe cleaners ready! Now, gather at the center of the baggie. Make sure the confetti is fairly evenly distributed on each side. Last, twist the pipe cleaner around the center of the baggie to make the butterfly body.
