Butterfly Homes

Butterfly Homes

It's so much fun in the summertime to chase beautiful butterflies through fresh, green grass. Once you capture one, if you can be quick enough, treat it like a special guest by putting it in one of your Butterfly Homes. Outdoor crafts for kids are great ways to get kids active rather than sitting inside and playing video games or watching television. Personalize this summer craft for kids by naming each butterfly and writing its name on your chalkboard lid. Bug crafts for kids are wonderful for learning about different species. This insect craft is not only educational and fun, but it's also extremely inexpensive since it's made from a recycled box. After your fluttery friend has had a nice stay, be sure to release it so it can rejoin its family.

Are you SERIOUS! The days when people went around capturing butterflies are long since gone. What an irresponsible post. Children should NOT be encouraged to capture wildlife , its threatened enough as it is.
