DIY butterfly gardens crafts


Begin by creating colourful butterflies. Take some pipe cleaners and shape them into butterfly forms, leaving two longer ends to serve as antennae.

Attach pom poms to the center of each butterfly as the body, using craft glue to secure them in place.

Use markers to add vibrant patterns and designs to the wings of the butterflies, allowing the kids to express their creativity.

Cut out flower shapes from construction paper in different colours.

Arrange the paper flowers on a flat surface to create a garden layout.

Attach the butterflies to the flowers using craft glue, letting the kids decide where to place each one.

Once the glue dries, your DIY Butterfly Garden is ready to display! Encourage the kids to fill their garden with an array of colours and patterns.
