Imaginary Clothespin Flying Butterfly

If your toddler loves butterflies, this would be a fun craft to make together. Not only is it a fun craft, but your toddler can play with their butterfly and get in some indoor exercise (since it's been raining all day). I did not think she would have this much fun with this imaginary butterfly, but she did and ran around with the butterfly as if it was flying!

Total Time: 15-20 minutes

Yield: 1 butterfly



  1. Prep butterfly project by cutting two sets of squares then fold and cut into a heart shape. I made one set in purple (larger heart) and one set in pink (smaller heart).
  2. Glue the hearts together to assemble the butterfly wings.
  3. Have your toddler decorate the clothespin, optional. You can also put on stickers, but she ended up just using a marker.
  4. Clip paper wings onto the pin and hot glue so when your toddler holds and walk/runs with the clothespin they won't accidentally have the butterfly fall off.
  5. Hot glue on the eyes.
  6. Turn the butterfly over. Cut 2 1" pieces of pipe cleaner and hot glue in place.
  7. Optional: Ready to decorate the butterfly wings if wanted.
