Butterflies and Butterfly Crafts are among my favorite in spring. I love when we see one in real life and get to watch their beautiful wings flutter around majestically while they fly. If you love butterflies too, you are certain to enjoy these 12 colorful Butterfly Crafts for Kids. There are so many different mediums you can use to create a pretty butterfly craft and I'm showcasing several of them here. We've got everything from paper bags, egg cartons, paper plates, foil, washi tape and more.

DreamWorks Home inspired Paper Bag Oh Puppet Kids Craft (with Free Pattern)

My kids have been anxiously waiting for DreamWork's new movie Home to come out in theaters for the last few months. Sadly my daughter was sick this past weekend so we weren't able to see it on it's opening weekend. She was very upset about it so we did the next best thing...We made a Paper Bag Oh Puppet. This kids craft is a perfect way to extend family time at home either before or after going to see the movie and I included my pattern, free for download, to make the craft even more simple.

Cupcake Liner Flamingo Kids Craft

If you follow my blog regularly, you've probably picked up on the fact that I love birds and cupcake liner crafts. I'm excited to share today how I mixed my love for both into this cute Cupcake Liner Flamingo Kids Craft. It works great as an alphabet craft when learning about the letter F, or it would be fun to make after visiting the zoo or a bird aviary that has Flamingos.

Cute Paper Bag Duck Kids Craft

I recently ordered some books from my preschooler's scholastic book order...Oh how I love the smell of new books! We have been having so much fun reading through all of them this last week. One of the books is about a cute baby duck and it inspired us to make this cute Paper Bag Duck Craft. It is soooo simple to make and super fun for kids to play with!

15 Adorable Bee Crafts for Kids

I have had a serious obsession with Bee crafts lately. It's actually really quite odd because if I see one in real life I will surely run and scream like the Boogie Man is after me. Why? Well, let's flashback to my family reunion 10 years ago (mind you I was 23 at the time). I felt something crawling up one of my legs inside my jeans. It turned out to be a Bee that stung me pretty good and ALL of my extended family had a good laugh at seeing me rip my pants off in a flash and stand around in my underwear. True story! But today, instead of being afraid of them, I'm celebrating their cuteness and am sharing these 15 Adorable Bee Crafts for Kids.

Popsicle Stick Butterfly Kids Craft

After we made our Popsicle Stick Bee earlier this week my daughter asked if we could make a Butterfly to go with it just like we did with our Paper Bag Bee and Butterfly. "What a fabulous idea!" I told her and our cute and colorful Popsicle Stick Butterfly Kids Craft was born.
