If there's a craft that the little ones love is to paint. It is so much fun for them and in this project, there's a tie and dye look that your create after painting your canvas that is absolutely genius. If you haven't made butterflies like this then it's time you do.

I really love this idea and I wish that I had seen it years ago when my children had smaller feet. I think my kids would have loved it. maybe, i could just buy bigger canvases that would fit their you for all of the great ideas. I know my kids and I will have a lot of fun making some of these.
