Bow Tie Pasta Butterfly Craft for Kids

Looking for a fun and creative activity to keep your little ones entertained? Why not try making a unique and adorable bow tie pasta butterfly craft! This craft is not only easy to make, but it also allows children to explore their creativity and develop their fine motor skills. This project is easy and fun to make with the simple stated materials. This project can be completed in no time and it is a great addition to your handmade projects.

Materials used for butterfly craft:

  • Farfalle Pasta (aka bow-tie pasta)
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Glue
  • Skewer Sticks (or craft sticks)

This butterfly craft is super easy! Give your children some paint and several pieces of pasta each, that’s it! They picked out their colors and painted as many pasta pieces as they wanted. We now have an army of butterflies currently decorating the playroom.

After they dried we wrapped a pipe cleaner around the center, twisting the top to create the antennae, then used our hot glue gun and attached the butterfly to the skewer sticks and voila: Butterflies!

Fluttering butterflies for your little ones to play with! Ours have been used as shadow puppets, in puppet theater shows, and even as wands. There are many ways for kids to play with these adorable little butterflies when you are done.

If they don’t want to play with them then hang them up. We have several butterflies now hanging from the ceiling and they add a fun burst of color to our playroom.

Simple, right? I love this butterfly craft because it keeps my kids busy at the art table for quite a while. Plus later, these keep butterflies give the kids a few hours of fun pretend play and they can decorate our playroom after!
