Kids will love the process you’ll use to make this paper towel roll butterfly craft. It’s fun, it’s easy, and it’s super-cute!. Just grab a paper towel and a cardboard paper towel roll to get started!
Hooray for spring and hooray for all the fun kids’ crafts that comes along with it. Birds, bees, flowers and butterflies are on our must-make list for the next few weeks.
Butterflies are one of our favourite spring crafts to make here in my daycare (you can see all of our butterfly crafts here.) We’ve made paper towel butterflies before, but this is the first time we’ve used the paper towel rolls as the butterflies’ bodies. They turned out so cute, don’t you think?
You can find all of our cardboard roll crafts here.
Speaking of butterflies, if you’re looking for more butterfly crafts to make with your kids this spring, we have lots of great ideas for you:

There are so many fun ways to incorporate butterflies into your preschool theme!
Our paper towel butterflies today are really easy to make, and they involve some fun steps.
We’ve been making lots of crafts with coloured paper towels lately. The hooligans love the process, so we dyed a ton of them a couple of weeks ago, and we’ve been crafting up all kinds of things with them.
This adorable butterfly craft is our latest. Super-cute, super-easy and super-fun!
You can display these on a window sill or suspend a bunch from the ceiling to decorate your classroom.
They’ll make your space look so bright and spring-y!
And hopefully, before long, we’ll be seeing real butterflies fluttering around the yard.
