Bow-Tie Noodle Butterfly Bookmarks

Bring a little sunshine into story time with a Bow-Tie Noodle Butterfly Bookmark!
These colorful critters make reading much more interesting and fun.
Begin by gathering the necessary materials and protecting your work area with newspaper or a table cover.
Have your child paint several pieces of bow-tie pasta, front and back, with different colors. Allow to dry.
Once dry, paint the other sides as well.
While bow-tie pasta pieces are drying, they can decorate and paint the Popsicle sticks that will act as the bookmark itself.
Once pasta is completely dry on both sides, use a small piece of pipe cleaner (about 2 inches) and wrap around the center. Twist pieces at the top until secure.
The excess will be the butterfly's antennas. If too long, give them a quick snip with the scissors!
Use a hot glue gun to attach the pasta butterflies to the top of the Popsicle sticks.
