3 Butterfly Life Cycle Crafts & Resources

I am so excited to share three awesome crafts that my children and I made this past week as we learned about the butterfly life cycle. Take a look at how easy it can be to make educational lessons fun and hands-on to enhance learning and take them to the next level.

Sister put the pieces in the right order of a butterfly life cycle as well as the labels and then we glued them onto the scrapbook paper. She loves looking at it and calling out the stages of the butterfly’s life cycle as she points at each one. Definitely an easy craft and the level of learning is through the roof.

Play Dough Butterfly Life Cycle

We used green play dough because it was easiest for us, but you can go all out and make this craft with more detail and more colors. That would look amazing!

Basically, we made each stage of the butterfly life cycle with play dough and then let it dry (harden) and then we glued the pieces to a pretty piece of cardstock. Make sure that you put enough tacky glue on the back of each piece and that it dries thoroughly before hanging on the wall.

    • Me, too! They picked their own color schemes! 😉 Love it how their personalities come out in little ways like these. 🙂
