Butterfly snacks

We were headed out to a play date this week and I wanted to bring something fun for the kids to share with their friends.  I found this idea on Family Fun.  Butterfly Bounty.  They were very easy to make and I was able to put them together with things I had around the house (the girls craft area) and the pantry.

I used to fill the bags:
-Kashi heart to heart cereal
-marshmellows
-cranberries
-choc chips
-cheezits
(*I know what a combo right- I don't think the girls will care-I am sure they will eat it!)

To make the butterflies I used:
-ziploc bags (snack size)
-pipe cleaners
-closepins
-I did not have googly eyes as suggested by Family Fun so I put them on with perm marker
-glitter glue

*I ended up using my glue gun to attach the antennae (aka pipe cleaners) b/c the glitter glue did not hold them on.  I did use the glitter glue to decorate the bodies.
