"We love letter-of-the-week crafts at our house when our preschoolers are learning their alphabet. Let’s make a B for butterfly craft with your young learner! This keepsake will make you smile every time you look at it. This free printable is perfect for fine motor skill development and is one you should add to your alphabet activity learning. We love doing contact and tissue paper crafts at our house. They’re simple but beautiful — and they adorn our windows for months!"

Materials List

  • butterfly pattern
  • two pieces of clear contact paper (about 9×12 inches each)
  • colored tissue paper cut into small (about 1-inch) squares
  • adult scissors
  • masking tape


  1. Peel off the backing of one piece of contact paper. Secure it to the table with masking tape, sticky side up.

  2. Lay your butterfly onto the sticky contact paper. Make sure its head is facing to the right. This is so that when you display the butterfly, the “B” will not be backward.

  3. Now your child can apply the colored tissue paper squares however he wants. No problem if the tissue paper covers part of the black construction paper. This will be the back of the craft. Encourage older children to cover all the sticky inside of the butterfly.

  4. Cover the finished butterfly with the other piece of clear contact paper. Carefully set it on top, and rub your fingers over the paper to seal the craft together.

  5. Trim around the outside edge of the craft with a scissors. You should leave at least half an inch around the outside.
