If you are in a hurry, you could make these butterflies without the scrapbook paper, but I love the finished look they have when you cover the clothespins. First lay a clothespin with the flat side down on the paper. Cut around the clothespin. Repeat for all of the additional clothespins. Glue the Scrapbook paper onto the clothespins and seal them with another layer of glue on top of the paper.
Allow your clothespins to dry. Cut all all of the pipe cleaners in half. Fold the halves into half again, and then bend the ends out to resemble antennae.
Fill the two corners of your snack bags with fresh fruit. I put 7-8 grapes on one side and then half to three-fourths of a peeled clementine on the other side.
Seal the bags and let out all of the air. Twist them in the middle and then slide the clothespin in the middle. Add the antenna to the clip to complete the little butterflies.
What kinds of snacks do you have on the sidelines of your kids games?
That s such a cute idea! My daughter is starting soccer this summer for the first time. Definietly making those and checking out the powerade.
Obviously your daughter's friends loved the butterflies-thus her change of heart about the contents. This really is a great idea and you do have ti replenish those electrolytes!!

That is a very cute way to present a healthy snack to the team. I know my boys and their friends usually gobble up the fruit if given a chance.

Hi Debra, What a handsome soccer family 🙂 And Love POWERADE® maPOWERADE – like your butterfly treat ideas even better!
How creative! I love these little touches on the snack bags. Powerade is a must in our family, not even for sports but to beat the heat in FL.
What a sweet snack for your soccer star! I love making my kids food I can feel good about. I know the extra effort into making the adorable butterflies would be appreciated.

Such a cute idea for the butterfly bags – this must go over big with the kids!
Those are cute and I love that you can put two different treats inside that couldn't normally be mixed in one package.
