Spring into Action with this Butterfly Craft

Our latest butterfly craft shows you how to make cute note holders out of wooden clothespins. This is a great craft for kids of all ages and would make a great activity for girl scouts or after school programs.

All the materials are probably things you have laying around the house, so there's no need to rush out and buy something.

Let's check it out!
