Butterfly Bites

Sometimes it’s not polite to play with your food. But for this fun bug snack, go ahead and play! What bugs can you make with your food?

What You Need

  • Plastic baggie
  • Clothespin
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Markers
  • Two of your favorite snacks
  • Candy eyes
  • Chocolate spread like Nutella®


  1. Color your clothespin to be the body of the butterfly.
  2. Put one of your snacks in one side of the plastic baggie. Put your other snack in the other side. Close the baggie.
  3. Fold the pipe cleaner in half and curl the ends. Put the middle of the pipe cleaner in the clothespin so the ends come out on either side.
  4. Pin the clothespin in the middle of the baggie, with your snacks on either side of the clothespin. Those are the wings!
  5. Using your chocolate spread, put two candy eyes on the clothespin.
