Most of the time, when people think about insects, they usually think about the creepy crawlies in the grass first. But what about the butterfly? They are the most colorful and gorgeous insects out there. I’ve gathered together 20 butterfly craft projects for kids to make that your kids will absolutely enjoy crafting. It doesn’t matter if you’re studying the life cycle of a butterfly or just want to break out the craft supplies – everyone will have fun with these activities.
One of the greatest things about these craft projects is that you really don’t need to spend a lot of money on supplies. They use everything from egg cartons and paper plates to popsicle sticks and tissue paper. They’re awesome because you can use just about anything you have in your crafty stockpile. Break out all the colors you have and let your child’s imaginations run wild! Does your little one love butterflies? Which butterfly craft do you think you and your family will make first?
