Now, my kids adore butterflies, and each year we get our own set of caterpillars, that we watch transform into stunning butterflies. It is amazing to watch the caterpillar/ butterfly life cycle and see those amazing animals emerge. Celebrate the arrival of summer with these lovely butterfly crafts for kids. Many would make a good craft activity for a girl’s birthday party, too. On the homemade side, both kids like to draw butterflies and we’ve made all kinds of butterfly crafts and art projects over the years. Spring is the perfect time of year to learn all about butterflies! We’ve seen quite a few fluttering around our backyard over the last couple weeks, and have encountered lots of cute, fuzzy caterpillars around town.
