Rainforest Butterfly

Rainforest Butterfly craft

Celebrate wildlife and warm tropical weather! Cut and color a flock of these bright winged creatures!

  • 1.

    Fold two sheets of black construction paper in half. Use Crayola Scissors to cut the outline of a butterfly. Open the sheets to see your butterfly wings’ shape.

  • 2.

    Close the wings. Cut out shapes inside the wings, leaving a black margin between each interior shape. Make sure both layers match.

  • 3.

    Use a Crayola Glue Stick to attach one of the butterfly layers to tracing paper.

  • 4.

    With Crayola Washable Markers, color the back of the tracing paper so the bright colors show through the butterfly wings.

  • 5.

    Glue the other butterfly shape to the back of the tracing paper, matching the first one.

  • 6.

    Create a body with legs from chenille stems. Twist it on the butterfly. Fold up the wings for a 3-D effect.
