Baby girl received some Confetti Play-Doh for Easter and it included a butterfly and a star cutter.  We started off making little butterflies and pretending they were flying around. I love how the confetti looks makes them look like colorful butterflies. Then they grabbed their Life Cycle of a Butterfly toys and we started to make animal impressions into the Confetti Play-Doh.

‘The caterpillar and the leaf with the eggs worked best for impressions.  Little Dude asked if birds ate caterpillars.  When I told him they do, he told his caterpillars he would protect them from the birds.

If you turn the butterfly upside down, you can get a better impressions of the wings.  We tried to make butterfly footprints, however the legs were too thin for anything to show.  Little Dude decided to bring out his Dad’s old toy Buzz Off from He-Man.  He loves this toy, because he thinks he looks like a bad guy and also because it used to be his Dad’s toy.

Buzz Off also made better footprints than the butterfly.  After all playing together for awhile, I let them play with the Confetti Play-Doh themselves, which gave me a few moments break.

About Seams Sew Lo 173 Articles
Hi I'm Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers.  I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job.  With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help. With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop.  I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits.  I was so busy I couldn't keep up and had to seek out third party help. After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy.  There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create.  I started venturing out to more articles of clothing.  It has been a fun adventure. I am learning as I go.  I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go.  I don't think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!
