Clothes Pin Butterfly ~ Easy, Fun, Snack Idea

I love to stick a small surprise in my kids’ lunchboxes sometimes.  Usually it’s just a note, but occasionally its a small package of candy.  I have 2 boys and 1 girl so I really didn’t want these to be too feminine.  My boys are all about bugs, monsters and basically everything my daughter isn’t!  I think that by using the bright striped washi tape and the yellow m&ms this isn’t going to embarrass the boys when they open their lunch box in front of their friends, but the heart for the mouth gives it enough pink and sparkle to let my daughter enjoy it too! I used washi tape again and love it.  The best thing about using washi tape is that there are so many options to fit so many different tastes and personalities.   Get creative, and make these little butterflies so they work for you!

You will need:

Clothes pins

washi tape

googly eyes

fun size bagged candy

glue

Begin by covering your clothes pin in washi tape.  It should be pretty close to the same width.  You may have to press it down on the sides a little.  Press it down firmly so it sticks well.  Glue on your eyes at the very top of your clothes pin.  Up on the opening side.  I found some pink, heart gems I had already that I used for the mouth.  They looked cute without them.  Or you could draw one on with sharpie too.

Grab your bag of candy and make a bow tie shape out of it, pushing the candy on both sides, so that it is somewhat even.  I twisted mine once to make sure it wouldn’t lose it’s shape.  Now place your clothes pin on the middle of the bag of candy.

That is it!  These would be great party favors, lunchbox treats, or just for a fun surprise.  The best part is that if you save the clothes pin you can use them again!

Aprils FOOLS DAY pranks and ideas for kids.

April 1st is right around the corner, here is a fun and easy idea you might want to remember for later.

If you like this idea make sure you follow our April Fools Ideas board on pinterest. 1st photo
April FOOLS!
What a fun and easy idea to make for your family on April 1st.
This could be sent in their lunches, on the breakfast table, or brought to coworkers.
A fun treat!
IngredientsIngredients:
Yellow M&M’s
Mini stick Pretzels
White melting chocolate
Cut tip offThis is super easy and fun to make.
Instructions:
Lay wax paper on a baking sheet.  The wax paper is used so the chocolate will not stick.

1. Break the pretzels in half, so they are the correct size to fit on the white of the eggs. Set them aside for later.
2.  Pull out the yellow M&M’s and put them aside.
I used green too.  Thought it would be fun to have some Green eggs and ham too.
3.  Put a handful of white chocolate circles in a bowl.  Put the bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Stir.  Microwave for 30 seconds at a time until the chocolate is melted.
4.  Pour the chocolate in a ziplock bag and cut off the tip.
5.  Make mini circles the shape of an egg.  A handful of chocolates made 8 eggs.
Take the back of a spoon and smooth the chocolate out more.
Chocolate on the board6.  Place the M&M’s and the pretzels in the soft white chocolate.
7.  Let the chocolate harden.

Have a Fun April Fools Day!
