25+ Colorful Butterfly Crafts for Kids

Butterfly crafts make me happy for several different reasons. Once I see those beautiful colorful wings out and about in nature, I know that Spring is on the way. (or quite possibly already even here!)

There’s nothing like seeing a beautiful butterfly just fluttering its wings through the air. It’s one of those magical moments that almost everyone stops to watch.

This is why we make certain that we have plenty of butterfly crafts on hand at all times. Decorating the inside of our home with the beauty of butterflies until we can start seeing them outside makes the winter days pass by that much more quickly.

The great thing about creating a pretty butterfly craft is that there are so many different mediums that you can easily use and I’ll happily showcase most of them below.

You’re going to find a wide variety of Butterfly Crafts for Kids from paper bags, paper plates, egg cartons, foil, washi tape, and more!
