Awesome Tie Dye Baby Wipes Butterflies


Lots of people have enjoyed the Tie-Dye Baby Wipe Art post I shared a few weeks ago. My friend Deborah from Teach Preschool shared the idea on her Facebook page and one of her readers mentioned that she used baby wipes (that were used to wipe up marker and then dried) to make butterflies. I thought that was the perfect way to use our tie dye baby wipes!!!


Here’s what you’ll need to make your own tie dye baby wipes butterflies:  

Baby wipes
Googly eyes
Pipe cleaners



1. Follow the directions on this post to make tie-dyed baby wipes and let them dry completely.

  1. I did this today with my girls (4 and 6). It was so fun! We actually used tie dye instead of markers and it worked great. They are looking forward to decorating their bedroom with their butterflies!

  2. I’m going to attempt these this weekend with my little guys, 6 and 3. If it works out I may bring these to my son’s Kindergarten class to make with all of them. They look so cute and simple!

  3. This looks amazing! Will try it out with the children in my crèche. How do you attach the antennae? Are they glued on?
