Spring has definitely sprung and caterpillars are transforming into butterflies as we speak! Gardens are becoming adorned with brightly colored flowers.

As a result lots of little kids are crazy about doing Spring crafts featuring both butterflies and flowers to celebrate this season.

Easy papers crafts are hugely popular with all my budding crafters whether they are 2 years old or 22 years old! 

I decided to make this simple garland featuring colorful butterflies and flowers with my children. We will be putting ours up in the kitchen. 

These could also be used for a Birthday party or indeed a garden party in the Summer months. Butterfly crafts are very popular with kids in the Summertime.
