Springtime Preschool Craft: Very Squishy Butterflies

Preschool kids will create these colorful butterflies to celebrate how Jesus makes all things new.

You’ll need:

  • Various colors of tissue paper squares,
  • resealable sandwich-size plastic bags,
  • chenille wire, and
  • wooden doll pins or wood clothespins.

Springtime Preschool Craft: Very Squishy Butterflies

Fill a bag with colorful tissue paper squares. Wrap a piece of chenille wire around the round top of the clothespin to create antennae, and push the bag through the slats of the clothespin to form wings. Remind kids that just as wings give butterflies the freedom to fly, Jesus freed us from our sins when he died on the cross and rose again on Easter morning.
