Spring has been here for a few weeks and we are loving the nicer weather, the flowers budding and the birds chirping. We are also enjoying the hummingbirds that have moved into our neighborhood as well as the colorful butterflies. Here are some Butterfly Craft Projects for Spring that kids will enjoy making.
Butterfly Craft Projects for Spring
My sister-in-law taught a class about metamorphosis and using that information to apply it to our own lives and made these beautiful butterfly mosaics with the class. I asked her for permission to share these. I am sure you won’t only love them, but be inspired to make them yourself with your children. It can be so much fun! It will spark creativity, togetherness and celebrating differences.
Start with a black or white background (construction paper is perfect) and cut out the shape of a butterfly. It is easier to get perfectly symmetrical shapes if the paper is folded in half to trace and cut.
For this craft, the sky is the limit when it comes to what you can use to decorate them.
To glue decorations on paper, I like to use tacky glue, but regular white glue will work just as well.
Feel free to share your beautiful creations in the comments below or on our Facebook page.
