Valentine’s Day Butterfly Craft

Valentines Day Butterfly Craft Tutorial

Quick and Easy Kids’ Butterfly for Valentine’s Day!

All the materials used are from the dollar store but you can get creative and use items from around your home. Happy Valentine’s Day crafting!

What you will need:

  • Coloured paper
  • Popsicle stick
  • Scissors
  • Glue (hot glue, white glue, or glue stick)
  • Marker
  • Wire




  • Googly eyes
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Any objects around your home to decorate the butterfly’s wings. I chose foam flowers from the dollar store that I had leftover from a previous craft


Step one:

Fold a sheet of colour paper in half to make a heart. Use that heart as a template to make a second heart so that your butterfly will be symmetrical.



Step two:

Trim the points off the ends of the two hearts.
