Smiley Butterfly Craft For Kids

When my daughter was a little girl I took her to Leeds to visit the Butterfly Gardens. It was an amazing experience to see so many different species and kinds of butterflies. My daughter absolutely loved it and so did I.

Today we have a fun and exciting butterfly craft I am sure you will enjoy!

Let’s Make This Cute Butterfly Craft

Print and cut out the patterns from the template.

Place the cut-out patterns on the selected coloured craft papers and trace around the sides. Use scissors to cut out the traced patterns nicely.

The template includes – 1 body pattern with wings, 2 small strips (antenna), 1 oval pattern (to create the smiley face of the butterfly), 2 teardrop patterns and 2 circle patterns for wing decoration.

You can create your own patterns for decorating the wings or simply print, cut out and use the template given with the tutorial.

Butterfly Craft

Attach the two teardrop patterns on the top side of the wings and the two circle patterns on the bottom side of the wings.

Smiley Butterfly

Take the oval pattern and draw the smiley face using black gel pen.

Use pink sharpie to create two blush patterns on both cheeks of the butterfly smiley face.

You can add more or less details as you wish.

Smiley Butterfly

Attach the smiley oval pattern right on the middle of the wing pattern.
