These easy Butterfly crafts for kids teach children how to make butterflies using different craft materials from paper plates to pipe cleaners.
Butterflies are one of the most beautiful insects to grace us with their presence. Little kids love them as they have such an array of different colors.
Did you know there are thought to be over 20000 different species of these; which ones you will see depends on whereabouts in the world you live.
They do not last for long though as they tend to live a little over a month so if your kids are missing watching them fly from one flower to another they should try and make some pretend ones using different craft supplies.
You can make these from very few materials and you can even use your handprints too! Why stop at butterflies when you can make caterpillars too!
