You’ll need: Various colors of tissue paper squares, resealable sandwich-size plastic bags, chenille wire, and wooden doll pins or wood clothespins. Super Simple Springtime Preschool Craft: Very Squishy Butterflies Start this springtime preschool craft off by helping preschoolers fill a resealable sandwich-size plastic bag with a lot of colorful tissue paper squares. Help the preschoolers seal the bag using the resealable strip. Then, wrap a piece of chenille wire around the round top of the clothespin to create antennae. Lastly, help preschoolers push the bag through the slats of the clothespin to form wings. Finish up the craft by reminding kids that just as wings give butterflies the freedom to fly, Jesus freed us from our sins when he died on the cross and rose again on Easter morning. Because of this, Jesus makes all things — including butterflies and us! — new. Close in a prayer thanking God for making us beautiful, just like butterflies!
