Make a cute little 3D butterfly paper craft. A quick and easy bug craft for kids to make and for you to display on the fridge.
Mommy’s Little Butterfly Mothers Day Craft template makes for a great Mothers day craft.
There are a few ways you can go about making this craft:
Make it as a Handprint Butterfly Mothers Day craft – by having your kids either make handprints on the template or trace around their hands and cut out the handprints to make the wings. You can make it as a photo craft or use the butterfly body that already comes with a face.
You can make a photo Mothers day craft, adding a photo on the designated area of the butterfly’s body and have the kids either draw the butterfly wings or use colored paper to make them. Torn paper or tissue paper would make this into a wonderful Mothers day art project too.
Our 3D butterfly life cycle craft gives your students a chance to explore the life cycle of this gorgeous insect in 3D.
It’s easy to assemble and can be done in one crafting sitting or you can space it out and do a stage at a time, while learning about that particular stage.
This butterfly craft comes both as a black and white template that kids can color in all by themselves or as a precolored craft template that is ready to go.
We recommend printing on heavier print paper / cardstock. Lables that kids can use to mark each stage of the butterfly life cycle are also included – butterfly, caterpillar (or larva), chrysalis (or pupa) and eggs.
Make a wonderful model diorama with your kids.
Flutter in the air with our butterfly movable paper doll template.
This butterfly craft paper doll is pretty easy to assemble – just print it on heavier print paper (construction paper), or laminate. Use split pins to secure the wings on the butterfly’s body – this will help those wings move. Split pins are also known as paper fasteners and brads and can be purchased in craft stores, office supply stores and “dollar store” type stores that offer office supplies.
Once the paper fasteners are in place, string a thread through the holes for the thread, tie the thread and pull – your butterfly will flutter it’s wings.
Flutter away like a butterfly! Print out our butterfly masks and let the kids have fun. We have one precolored monarch like mask but we really hope you will print out the black and white mask and have the kids decorate it on their own! There is no limits when it comes to coloring the butterflies, have the kids pick out their favorite colors and bring this mask to life.
We recommend these bug masks to be printed on heavier print paper or cardstock to ensure maximum durability.
Explore the life cycle of a butterfly with this fun no prep craft. Print out the agamograph template (best on cardstock) and let the kids color it in. Once they are done coloing it, let them cut it out. Last but not least comes the folding part – kids need to fold along all the parallel lines (make an accordion). All done.
