Butterfly Crafts and Activities for Toddlers

Why not share this post!

I love these butterfly crafts and activities for toddlers - they are the perfect toddler activity for spring or summer. These activities are also perfect to partner up with our Insects and Bugs toddler activities too.

Butterfly Crafts and Activities for Toddlers 

If you're preparing a Spring theme for your toddler activities then you have to include butterflies. I like to start with our Insects and Bugs theme and then work our way to the butterflies (though there's no right or wrong way to do this). 

I always like to link our activities to a great toddler book and for this one it's hard to go past the classic book, 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. I spent quite a bit of time looking for another one to recommend but this book is just too perfect! The final page and the beautiful colors of the butterfly sets the scene perfectly for these great butterfly crafts and activities. If you don't already own a copy you can get one HERE from Amazon
