20 Beautiful Butterfly Crafts for Kids

In celebration of spring, we’ve put together a list of 20 butterfly crafts for kids that will be perfect for celebrating spring with the littles! Try one or try them all and add some springtime fun to your day with the kids.

Springtime is my favorite time of the year! I get back into gardening, enjoying the birds in the back yards making nests and eating from our bird feeders, and the gorgeous butterflies flying around our yard. 

Spring also begins on my birthday most years so it holds a special place in my heart. There’s something about getting outside and soaking in the sunshine after a few weeks of rain. And one of my favorite things to do is to go outside with a blanket and lay down in the grass with the kids as we look up and watch nature around us. 

The kids are always amazed at how much they can see once they sit still and silence themselves for a few moments. I ask each of them to try and find one new thing they didn’t notice when we first came outside and I love hearing what they discover. Yesterday Ethan discovered that the bird who nests at our house every year has finally returned. So we can expect some babies soon!! Molly is on the hunt for caterpillars so we can see if we can watch them turn to chrysalises.

If you want some hands-on inspiration for your butterfly crafts, try creating a butterfly garden in the yard so you can attract butterflies in your yard for the kids to check out.

  1. Hi Danielle,

    Many thanks for this post, my little girl is absolutely nuts about butterflies so this will be great for her to sink her teeth into. On a personal note my favourites are the stick butterflies and the cup butterfly. The googly eyes and the side smile reminds me of a stop motion animation of clay figures I was when I was much younger and are quite endearing.

    Again thanks for the great post/resource and also for the great photography too!

    • I’m so sad I can’t purchase one of your bottle cutters in the US! Just searched on Amazon and no options to ship to my house 🙁 Would love to know how to purchase in the US!
