Last year, we went on a realistic butterfly kick and made the following crafts: Blue Morpho | Tiger Swallowtail | Monarch | Painted Lady.
Since it had been so long since our last, I decided to make a few more templates, this being one of them. Buckeye Butterflies are very beautiful, with large circular spots on their wings that resemble eyes. That’s very useful in tricking predators! Use the example butterfly on the printable for colors. I gave my 6-year-old one color at a time (starting with the lightest) and that worked well. Print below and enjoy!
