Butterfly Craft Idea

Butterflies make a great subject for art and craft ideas. Here is one butterfly craft idea to get you started.

Things you will need:

  • Grated crayons of different colours
  • Paper (we use baking paper which is heat resistant)
  • Scissors
  • Iron
Draw the outline of a butterfly on the baking paper, ensuring it is roughly symmetrical. Get the children to cut out the shape (Alternatively you could do this at the end). Fold the shape in half so the fold line runs down the length of the butterfly body. On one side of the butterfly, sprinkle patterns of crayon gratings. Fold the butterfly in half and press it with an iron. Open up the shape while it is still warm.
