Butterfly – Cut out a bubbled “X” shape out of construction paper to create butterfly wings. Dip a Q-tips® Cotton Swab in paint and “dot” your own unique pattern around the wings. For extra sparkle, sprinkle some glitter over the wet paint and gently sift away. Glue a painted (and dry!) popsicle stick to the center of the construction paper to create for the butterfly’s body. Top it off with a puffy ball for a beautiful summer butterfly.

Flip Flop Monster – Recycle an old summer flip flop into a funny monster! Turn the flip flop bottom up and glue on two googly eyes. Take two popsicle sticks, wrap ¾ of the stick with pipe cleaner and top with a puffy ball. Glue the remaining ¼ of the stick to the top side of the flip flop. Arrange another pipe cleaner into the shape of the monster’s mouth. Cut off the ends of 4 Q-tips® Cotton Swabs to create 8 “teeth” and glue inside the mouth to finish your flop monster!

Simple sheep – It’s easier to count and fall asleep to cute Q-tips® sheep! Cut a rounded shape out of construction paper as the sheep’s body. Cut off the tips of Q-tips® Cotton Swabs and arrange as to form a sheep’s coat. Cut a popsicle stick in half and glue to the back for legs. Finally, draw a friendly face and voila!
