Food
Fun Jell-O jigglers cut with a cookie cutter into butterfly shapes.
Sandwiches cut with cookie cutters.
Bow tie pasta - it looks like butterfly wings!
Large Butterfly cookies - Cut cookies with a triangle cookie cutter and then place them together at the points of the triangle to make butterfly wings.

I did something similar to this for my DD's 6th bday and put them on cup cakes

Quoting momofsixangels:

58  Small Pretzel Twists (you will need 48 for the body and the rest for the antennae.  Good place to use up the broken pieces)

1 Cup Candy Melts (you COULD use white chocolate bits, but this just sets up better)

120 M & Ms (I use the brown ones for the head, so don’t eat all of them before you start….)

Directions:

Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Put the Candy Melts in the zip loc bag or in the decorating bag. 

Don't cut the end yet, or you will have quite a mess...

Microwave for 30 seconds.  Knead bag.

You can see that some of them have melted, so moosh it around a bit and put it back in the microwave.

Microwave again for another 30 seconds, and knead bag again.  Continue doing this until completely melted.

Perfect. Be sure you close the top of the bag before you knead the melted candy. I twist the top of the bag and fold it over once.

Cut corner of zip loc bag or cut tip of disposable bag.

Nothing Fancy. If you wanted, you could melt the candy and then put it into a decorator bag with a tip. But...let's not forget...it's a butterfly body.....

The bag will be very hot, so don’t let the kids pipe the candy until it cools off.   If you are piping the candy, just put a hot mitt on first.

Put a line (about 1 inch) of the melted candy every three inches on the cookie sheet.

A very CLEVER Grandma would tell a story about how the caterpillar turns into a butterfly.

Arrange pretzel twists on cookie sheet in groups of 2 with single-hole sides of pretzels touching to form butterfly wing.  Anchor them in the melted candy.

You don't need a lot of the candy, just enough to keep the pretzels from moving around.

Squeeze bag to pipe thin zigzag of melted candy between the pretzels to look like bodies of butterflies.  Pipe melted candy into each hole in wings;
Break remaining pretzels into pieces for antennae; place 2 pieces at top of each butterfly between wings.

When you are doing this with the kids, you would pipe the body and the dots in the wings. Then they can place the candy.

Put brown candy between antennae for head.

This is why I told you not to eat all the Brown M & Ms...

Put an M & M into each of the holes with melted candy.
