This tissue paper butterfly craft is a great way for kids to use up some of that tissue paper you’ve stashed away. Toddlers, preschoolers and big kids will all love this colourful spring craft!
The other day, I was organizing the craft cupboards and I noticed our tissue paper supply was getting a little out of hand. Our collection is ever-growing because I save all the tissue paper from birthdays and baby showers and what-not. Clearly we need to craft with tissue paper more often to get the situation under control.
The first project on my list? These pretty tissue paper butterflies! We love a good butterfly craft, and these ones were really fun and easy to make.
To add interest to the project, we began with a lesson in design. The hooligans planned their project on paper, and colour-coded their plan before decorating their butterflies. It was fun for the kids to learn a new skill, and even the youngest hooligan was able to plan her project.
Pop over to CBC Parents to see our butterflies, and to get the step-by-step photos and instructions so your kids can make some of their own.
