Butterfly from empty paper towel roll

‘Letter of the week – B’ would be incomplete without a Butterfly craft.

Making butterflies is always so much fun as it gives you an opportunity to be as creative as you can without going by any rules.

Things required for 'Butterfly from empty paper towel roll' craft are: Empty toilet roll, orange foam( you can use paper also), green polka dots butter paper (this craft can be made with any kind of paper or material), scissors, pipe cleaner, glitter glue (only because my daughter likes them, you can use normal glue instead), goggly eyes and most importantly lots of stick ons/beads or similar for decorating the wings.

Get him/her to add the eyes and the antennae made from the pipe cleaners. The butterfly is ready.

Get your little butterfly to stick the toilet roll in the center of the wings and start pasting the decorations. This will most likely be their favorite part of the craft. It was for my daughter.

Early Learning goes a long way in your child’s education and upbringing. Amongst the very important things to learn for a toddler or preschooler are hand-eye coordination, 5 senses, practice fine and gross motor skills, balance, and muscle development. A lot of this can be practiced at home with crafts and activities under adult’s supervision. Playing with colors, pots and pans, brushes, sponges, glue; reading books, pretend play, all seem like child’s play to us but are actually helping your toddlers/preschoolers develop their minds and bodies.

Please make sure all the activities mentioned in this blog are done under adult supervision. If your children are still putting things in their mouths, then avoid activities with small particles that can cause chocking hazards. Also, all steps in the articles that involves a pencil, knife, pair of scissors or any sharp objects should be performed by an adult.
