Create beautiful and unique butterfly designs with this adorable summer butterfly craft for kids!
We love a good summery craft and my kids had so much fun designing their own beautiful little butterflies. We used paints to decorate our butterflies but you and your kids can get as creative as you like! why not decorate them with some gluing and sticking? or how about using coloured pencils? Either way we just love seeing how your home crafting turns out – did you know that we are now on Facebook? You can share your photos with us there!
Here’s what we used
- Coloured card
- Lollipop stick
- Pom Poms
- Glue or double sided tape
- Googly eyes
- Pipe cleaner
- Paints, embellishments or markers (something to decorate the butterflies with)
- Our free Printable (Which you can download below)
How to make our Summer butterfly craft
Take the lollipop stick and glue a large pom pom at one end. Cover the rest of the stick with a row of slightly smaller pom poms and set it aside to dry.
Take your free butterfly wings template and cut it out (as you can see we printed our template directly onto our yellow card but you can always just use the template to draw around). Once the wings are cut out use your markers, paints or embellishments to decorate them with.
One dry, take the pom pom covered lollipop stick. Twist a pipe cleaner securely around the body of the stick just below the butterfly’s pom pom head. trim the two ends of pipecleaner to the desired length before curling each end slightly to make the antennae. Glue on two googly eyes and optionally a mouth.
Stick the Butterfly’s pipe cleaner body down in place on its wings and leave until completely dried. The butterflies are then ready to show off and display – Aren’t they just the cutest!?
