One of our favorite spring-time activities is watching butterflies complete metamorphosis.
Luckily enough, we have been able to plant a banana passionfruit, and caterpillars love eating it, which means we can watch them transform into beautiful butterflies right in our garden.
To celebrate this incredible experience, we decided to make these cute butterfly corner bookmarks.
I know that everyone likes to see butterflies fluttering around, so why not make some for our favorite Spring books!
These bookmarks are not only the perfect craft for Spring, but can also be made in Summer camps, insect homeschooling units, Easter, or Mother’s Day.
All I know is kids love making them and using them any time of the year. I mean, they are adorable. Who wouldn’t like them, right?
If you want to make these cute bookmarks with your kids, all you have to do is get the template at the end of this post and follow the instructions to assemble it.
It is super easy for children of almost all ages, as the only skills required are cutting, folding, and gluing.
If these butterfly bookmarks were love at first flight, why not make your own?
Let me show you how!

Butterfly Bookmark Template
I know these butterfly bookmarks are a fun craft you can make all year round, but we found them particularly useful during Spring and Summer.
That’s why I decided to bundle them up with three other cute bug bookmark designs: a bee, a dragonfly, and a firefly.
