Butterfly Crafts You Can Do at Home

12:23 PM

Autumn is here and it's time to start conquering some new crafts! Whether you have a preschooler, kindergartner, or a 1st grader, butterfly crafts offer a great way to spend an afternoon, to decorate your house, to spend time together, and to learn about nature. In this post you'll find four of my favorite butterfly crafts put together by top-notch bloggers who walk you through the process of creating butterfly crafts step-by-step.

Picking things like butterfly crafts will open up discussions with your child about science and nature. Ask questions like "Where do butterflies live?" or "Why are butterflies important?" Talk with your child about the differences between moths and butterflies. You can also use this as a chance to try out new craft items. Each craft below requires different things - some use paint, some use markers, and some use scissors. Choose a butterfly craft that meets your child's needs and that is age-appropriate for your little ones.
