I thought girls were born knowing how to draw a butterfly. Not true, but my little girl loves them…so I thought I’d learn how and then teach her. There’s nothing wrong with a dad teaching his little girl how to draw a butterfly…right?

At any rate, we had fun. That’s what matters.

  • Pencil, pen, marker, or crayon

How To Draw A Butterfly Focus

  • Small body and giant wings make butterflies cuter…ya I said it
  • You can make this a counting exercise for really young kids
  • Ask how many circles they used when making the butterfly
  • Point out the hidden “3”

Next time we make another video I’ll be sure to give my kids a dark marker, instead of a pencil. It’s too hard to see in the video. If you watch the video in HD it’s easier to see her cute drawing.

If you’re having trouble watching the video here, watch How To Draw A Butterfly on YouTube!
