Here is a fantastic Butterfly craft for you to try. 

We love Butterflies. I especially love the different colours and shapes of butterflies. I remember taking my little girl to the butterfly gardens in Leeds, Yorkshire when she was small. It was a fantastic adventure and somewhere I would love to return.
