Butterfly Activities for Children

I created this page of links for all things “butterfly”!! It is to help you moms (and us grandmas) find crafts and learning activities for children that like butterflies… and I haven’t met one yet. I hope you find it useful in your fun filled teaching moments with the beautiful children in your lives.

Rachel informs us that 76% of our butterfly species have declined over the past 40 years, so anything that helps spread the word about protecting these little chaps would be massively appreciated. She wrote a helpful and interesting Ultimate Guide to Butterflies.

From colorful butterfly inspired headbands to coloring pages you can find something to please the little butterfly lover in your life!
