Butterflies are one of our favorite sure signs of summer! We’ve had so much fun making moveable transforming paper butterflies, upcycling paper tubes into rainbow butterflies and even using loose parts to decorate the wings of a collaged butterfly craft! This summer we thought we’d show our love for these pretty pollinators with handfuls of hearts! Add to our printable with a little glue and folded paper hearts to easily make your own beautiful butterfly – complete with colorful wings that flutter in the breeze! A cute spring or summer art project for kids that also practices those fine motor skills.
BUTTERFLY PAPER HEART CRAFT – MATERIALS:
- Our Butterfly Printable
- Colored construction paper
- Heart punch (we used a one inch puncher)
- Glue stick or hot glue gun
- Markers or crayons
Step 1: Print out the butterfly printable.
Step 2: Cut out hearts using your heart puncher in various paper colors.
Step 3: Color the butterfly body with markers or crayons.
Step 4. Fold your paper hearts in half. Arrange them as you’d like on your butterfly template.
Step 5. Add a dab of glue to the folded line of each heart and place on the wings. A low temperature glue gun is a great use for this and fine motor exercise in getting kids to use a glue gun for the first time!
