Spring is coming…at least that’s what we keep telling ourselves! Everybody loves butterflies and kids are especially fond of them. My kids and I were recently deciding what to do with some extra crafting supplies we had on hand and we came up with this adorable Textured Butterfly Art project!
You’ll love it too! It’s simple, fun and there’s so much room for creativity. I’ve also included a FREE Printable to help get you started!
Here are two other Butterfly activities you might want to check out:

- Crafting supplies (think…collage materials)
- Glue sticks
- Washable paints
- Card stock paper (I printed on both white and colored card stock for depth)
- Textured Butterfly Art FREE Printable
Let’s get creative!
This is when we let our creative bug take over! My tip for using glue sticks is to go with the disappearing glue from Elmer’s. It dries clear and doesn’t take away from your creation!
We used washable paints and sponges as well! The best part is if you add your collage materials while the paint is wet then you don’t need to use glue.
I just love art projects that are unplanned and allow us to use our creative minds in a whole new way! I hope that you enjoy this FREE Printable and Textured Butterfly Art project!
