Hiding Your Pretty Little Butterfly Snacks

Pretty Little Butterfly Snacks for Scouts

If your child is part of a scouting troop, this would be a great craft for them.  They could be donated to a woman’s shelter or taken to a retirement home for delivery to the residents.  What a great way to cheer them up with a treat and maybe even work on a badge or two!

Pretty Little Butterfly Snacks are an awesome way to show someone how much you care.  As a gift or a treat, they will put a smile on the recipient’s face and brighten their day.  Make up some Pretty Little Butterfly Snacks and watch the happiness spread!
