To create your very own fruit butterflies for your child’s lunchbox you will need:

  • A selection of your child’s favourite fruit
  • A food storage clip or clothes peg
  • A small, self seal sandwich bag
  • A short length of pipe cleaner
  • A black, permanent marker


Simply add the fruit to the storage bag. Push it evenly to either side and add the storage clip around the middle. Give your storage clip eyes and add the pipe cleaner through the top to act as antennae.
