Lately, we have seen lots of pretty butterflies flying around and even have tried to change some. This easy printable butterfly dot painting craft for kids template would be a great way to add a colorful craft.
My daughter has been enjoying catching butterflies with her net. It is a good exercise running all over the park. Then, after showing her dad, she lets them go.
This butterfly arts and craft project would be great for toddler and preschoolers to older children. You could have your kids use paint brush, markers, or fingers to make this craft too.
Pair this free easy printable butterfly template craft with a book for creating and reading fun. We like Little Blue Truck’s Springtime.
This free butterfly outline template could be used for a other butterfly crafts or for an easy coloring page for the letter B.

How to Make an Easy Printable Butterfly Dot Painting Craft for Kids – Free Butterfly Template Outline
- free butterfly printable –
- White Card stock
- Bright liquid watercolors or try these Watercolors with brush
- 5 small plastic cups or 1 for the water
First, print out the free printable butterfly template file on white card stock.
Next, pour a little of the liquid watercolors in each of the cups. I have blue, yellow, red, orange, purple and green.
Then, dip a cotton swab in a color of your choice and make a dot. Repeat, change cotton swab for each color. The more often you dip the cotton swab in the color the darker the color will be.
You could use a paintbrush and paint the picture instead. Another option is using markers and making dots.
You could outline it with salt or black glue and use watercolors with that too. Another idea, is using tissue paper to fill in the flower with crunched up pieces.
Dot paint is a lot of fun and it can be creative without being hard. You can make all types of patterns on you dot art painting.
