Second Grade Butterfly Project

Every year the second graders raise Red Admiral Butterflies.
I was wondering what to do with the kids at the end of the year and mom came up with this idea.
She's a smart cookie, even came up with the idea for a loop to put on your finger. 
I traced around a template onto sheet foam. You saw mom above cutting them out. There were only 80 to do.
We looked around the craft shops for ideas for the color areas and came up with this.
For the loop, body and antenna, bend a pipe cleaner in half without creasing.
Leave an inch above for the antenna, take loop around the back and front of the body. Take loop over antenna and twist twice. There's your finger loop!
