Butterfly Craft Ideas For Kids

Butterfly craft ideas are great for kids! Everyone loves butterflies, they are so beautiful and they seem to almost float about the garden and yard. They are so graceful.

Some of the craft ideas you can use to make butterflies are:

Well we know what most of the projects listed are about...but do you know what Origami is? Origami is the art of paper folding without cutting or gluing it. Just folding. If you're not familiar with Origami you are going to amazed at some of the intricate designs people can make. And now you and your kids can join this group! You are going to learn how to make some unique, and lovely Origami shapes!

Do you have straws? Paper plates? Do you usually have eggs in your refrigerator?

Most of these are things you already have around the house and if you have to buy them they are pretty inexpensive! You should begin to save your empty egg cartons. You can make some great crafts out of them with your children.
