When it comes to spring crafts, butterflies are the insects that get the most attention, and deservedly so.

This particular idea is suitable for children of all ages; Toddlers and preschoolers will especially enjoy it (and it’s suitable for them) because it can get a little messy.

How to make easy symmetrical butterfly art

What you need:

  • paper (construction paper is best, but regular printer paper is fine)
  • tick
  • paint (tempera or other child-safe water-based paint)
  • drag
  • construction paper for the body
  • glue

Step-by-step instructions

Take a sheet of paper, gently fold it in half to create a crease in the middle. Starting from the fold, draw the shape of the butterfly’s body. You can also write number 3.

Drop each drop of paint (generously) inside the butterfly wing outline you drew.

Use as many colors as you want.

Close the paper (according to the fold).

Optional: Gently push up, down, left and right (not too much) to move the color a little.

Slowly unfold the paper – a wonderful colorful creation will greet you.

Let the paint dry. Once dry, take scissors and cut out the butterfly wings.

If the color is dry, you can fold the paper again, this time with the butterflies on the outside, and cut along the border.

Cut an oval shape from construction paper and glue it onto the butterfly wings.

Also, add the head and beard.

Tip: depending on your age, you may want to skip this step as younger children may find making the butterfly head and especially the beard a challenge.

You can curl your beard a little to give them volume.

It’s going well.

Draw details with a marker.

Finally, glue the butterfly to a paper straw, pen, or craft stick.
