How to Make Butterflies
Preschool crafts are tons of fun! Not only do they encourage little ones to get creative, but they usually rely on craft supplies you’ve already got on hand.
In order to complete the crafts featured below, you’ll want to gather your construction paper, tissue paper, paint, scissors, and glue.
If you need additional supplies, you can likely pick them up at your local dollar store. If not, you can order them from Amazon to be delivered right to your front door.
Once your child has completed their butterfly crafts, there are many things you can do with them.
Your preschoolers can hang them in your craft space or classroom. They can share the finished craft with a loved one – an older sibling, grandparent, or babysitter.
Or, you can put them on the fridge throughout the spring season.
