play & eat: butterfly

One might say I have an obsession with making butterflies. 

Well, they are easy & well…EASY ;)

1. lunch butterfly

cheese quesadillas, blackberries, cucumbers, fruit leather, cherry tomatoes, twizzler rope

2. lunch butterfly

bananas, peanut butter, carrots, kiwi, star fruit, mini chocolate chips, cheese sticks, yellow tomatoes

3. breakfast butterfly

blueberry pancake, tangerines, banana

4. lunch butterfly

apples, peanut butter, green pepper, cherry tomatoes, fruit leather, kiwi, cheese

Here are some tools I used to make the above meals:

mini cutters & butterfly sandwich cutter.

Sooooo…I also made ya a fun little printable for the kiddos to go along with your butterfly meal(s).  Just print it out & have the kiddos color each wing based upon the colored dots on that wing!  It’s color recognition…it’s hand-eye coordination…it’s color matching…and it’s a butterfly!

Fun times are about to be had :)


And here is the printable color by color dots butterfly.
