Resurrection Butterflies

Butterflies are great symbols of new life when you are talking about the resurrection.  These are really easy and really effective to make- but are probably best made by older children as the folding can be a bit fiddly!

You will need: Brightly coloured magazine pages, string

First get a magazine page,

Then cut it into 2 squares- I used one 12 x12 cm and one 8cm x 8cm

Starting with a corner, concertina the paper diagonally

Tie the two concertinaed squares together with thread (put the larger square at the top).

Hang the butterflies up!
