Daniel's obsessed with bugs at the moment - especially butterflies and bees.

I thought it might be nice to look up some bug-themed crafts!

Here are some nice ones for older kids. Still looking for something not too fiddly for Daniel!

The first two would make really pretty suncatchers. I might try those to hang in Alice's window.

You can also apply paint on one half of a paper and then fold it. Put colours in such a way that it gives appearance of a butterfly half and you are done with it.

Thanks! My father was an entomologist and I have his HUGE insect collection, which my kids are always trying to get at. I will have to try insect-crafts instead!
