Spring is officially here and I am excited!  To celebrate in Maine we 

Materials Needed

  • Contact paper
  • Tissue paper (assorted colors) – cut into small pieces
  • Tape 
  • Scissors
  • Any color construction paper


  • Cut one piece of contact paper large enough to fold over and cover your butterfly.  Tape each corner to your work surface and peel the backing.
  • Cut strips of construction paper to make the outline of a butterfly (I used a butterfly mask as a pattern – you can freehand or print an image to trace).
  • Cut squares of tissue paper.
  • Have your child apply the tissue paper inside the butterfly outline.
  • Once finished fold the top of the contact paper down sealing the tissue paper and butterfly outline.  Rub the top to remove air bubbles.
  • Cut extra material off around the outline of the butterfly.
  • Tape to a window and enjoy!
