Step 2: Cut out you butterfly pattern. Now glue your butterfly pattern on the heavy paper. Use any colors, but make both halves look the same. Put a small hole at the top of the butterfly's head.
Step 3: Color the toilet paper tube to look like a chrysalis. (A monarch butterfly's chrysalis is green, but you can use any color.)
Step 4: Take a piece of pipe cleaner and shape it like the letter "V". Put one point through the little hole in the butterfly's head and then twist it to look like antennae. Butterflies use these "feelers" to learn about their environment.
Step 5: Glue the butterfly to one end of the tongue depressor or ice-cream pop stick. Let the glue dry.
Step 6: Curl the butterfly's wings and slide it into the chrysalis.
Step 7: Pull the stick to make the beautiful butterfly come out of the chrysalis.
8: Fly your butterfly like a real one!
