Spring break is here and that means lots of time for crafting with the kids. Butterflies are a sign of spring and these popsicle stick butterflies are adorable. They are quick and easy enough for toddlers and preschoolers but older kids love them, too! Add glitter, glitter glue, sequins, or other embellishments to make each butterfly unique. This butterfly craft would make a cute magnet or decoration.
Popsicle Stick Butterfly Craft
Line up 3 or 4 popsicle sticks next to each other to create the body of the butterfly. Pick the same color or different colors. Be creative! Cut another popsicle stick in half. Glue half of the cut stick on to the top and the bottom of the sticks to hold those sticks together. Twist the pipe cleaner to look like butterfly antennae and glue to the back of the popsicle sticks.
Cut out various sizes of construction paper hearts. Glue the biggest set first as the wings. Then layer the
smaller ones onto them for decoration. Add glitter, glitter glue, sequins or use markers to decorate the butterfly wings even more.
Add the googly eyes and a construction paper smile! Add a magnet to the back, if you’d like as well.
