Simple and Free Butterfly Crafts

Preschool butterfly craft

Free spring crafts How to make a butterfly
These are so easy to make! Just give each of your students one sheet of colored paper and a lollipop. Children working in pairs must each have a different color of paper.

Here are the steps for the students:
  1. Fold your paper in half.
  2. Draw a large heart and cut it out so that you have two identical hearts.
  3. Wrap and glue the pointy bases of the hearts around the lollipop stick. These will form the butterfly's wings.
  4. Exchange the remaining scrap of paper you have with your partner. This will give you a new color to add patterns to your butterfly's wings.
  5. Draw circles on the scrap of paper and cut them out.
  6. Stick the circles on the wings to make spots.
  7. Done!
Older children can add more details of their own to their butterfly like adding eyes and a mouth to the lollipop to make a face. This craft can be used for Valentine's Day or for Spring. Just chose the right colors of paper for the theme that you are using. Click here to download a free printable Google Doc template of this craft.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
