Butterfly Snack Clips

Butterfly Snack Clips are a great way to get your kids excited about snack time. Let them make their own butterfly clip that they can reuse time and again. The night before school, let them fill their wings with colorful snacks to make a beautiful butterfly. Then they take their Butterfly Snack Clip to school in their pack lunch or for snack time. After school, pop the magnetic butterfly body on the fridge so you know where to find it. 

This was a great craft to make with the niece and nephew last night. Ages 4 and 6, they loved designing their Butterfly Snack Clips. 

Fill your wings with anything colorful. Candy, cereal, fruit...the possibilities are endless!
