freeze for about 3 hours, until very firm.
Melt chocolate chips over hot water.

melted chocolate over each banana, coating well.

What you need:
*Eye Dropper or Straws
*Wooden Clothes Pin
Color small bowls of water
with food coloring.
Using an eye dropper
or a straw, scatter drops of
colored water onto round coffee
filters and watch the colors blend.
While the filters dry
draw eyes and body details
on wooden clothespins.
Gather each coffee filter
up in the center and
clip with the clothespin.
Make antennae for each butterfly
by inserting a pipe cleaner into
the end of the clothespin
and twisting it secure.
Bend the ends of the
pipe cleaner to make it look realistic.
You can use tissue paper instead
of coffee filters for a multi-layered effect.
Decorate with sequins and buttons.
Kids love making these scaly looking fish.
Supplies needed (substitutes may be used):
* Fish pattern-click HERE for pattern.
* Craft foam or card stock for fish
* Multiple colors of tissue paper sheets cut into small squares
* Googly craft eyes
Trace the fish pattern onto foam or cardstock and then cut along the lines,
if you prefer you can cut a fish shape free form.
Twist or bunch up the pieces of tissue paper
Place dots of glue on the fish and press the tissue paper down until it is stuck in place
Continue gluing tissue paper until the fish is covered
Glue on googly eyes to the face of the fish and let dry thoroughly
*NOTE: You can even take spray adhesive
and lightly spray the tissue paper
after it's completely dry and then sprinkle
with glitter to make a shimmery fish.
