This week we head over to Mellow Marsh with our TECHNOLOGY-focused activity. It’s time to make a buzz with our butterfly noisemaker. 

You’ll need:

  • Popsicle stick
  • Construction paper
  • Elastic band
  • String
  • Markers
  • Glue


  • Trace and cut out a butterfly shape.
  • Decorate your butterfly.
  • Tie a string near the bottom of the popsicle stick.
  • Place the popsicle stick in the middle of your butterfly and glue it on.
  • Now stretch your elastic band over the top of the popsicle stick.
  • Hold the string by the bottom and swing your butterfly noisemaker around.
  • It’ll create a buzzing sound!

What’s creating that buzz? When you swing the noisemaker in the air it creates vibrations. The buzzing sound comes from the elastic band vibrating against the popsicle stick.
