Kids create these colorful butterflies
to celebrate how Jesus makes all things new.
Stuff: Various colors of tissue paper squares,
resealable sandwich-size plastic bags, chenille wire, and wooden
doll pins or wood clothespins.
What to do: Fill a bag with colorful tissue
paper squares. Wrap a piece of chenille wire around the round top
of the clothespin to create antennae, and push the bag through the
slats of the clothespin to form wings. Remind kids that just as
wings give butterflies the freedom to fly, Jesus freed us from our
sins when he died on the cross and rose again on Easter
