We've done a ton of paper butterfly crafts on the blog and today I have one more to add to the list. I recently made these cute and easy fluttering paper butterflies with a group of preschoolers. The kids enjoyed decorating the paper insects and then flying them around outside. 

Here's how we made them!

Free 3D Minecraft Paper Doll Printables

Do your kids love Minecraft? My two boys simply adore the game and we've made tons of Minecraft crafts this past year. When my eldest made a cute 3D paper Steve from Paper Pixelcraft my younger son wanted a paper doll too, but there were just too many parts for him to cut out and fold. So I ended up simplifying the doll design and leaving it blank so that he could draw in his own details. Since both boys enjoyed making these simpler Minecraft paper dolls, I figured I'd share the designs here too.

Ready to color, cut, fold, tape, and play?

Keep on reading to see how we did it.

Easy and Lovely Paper Strip Birds

Lately, I've been thinking of that Emily Dickinson quote, "Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all." 

These past weeks, I've felt moments of sadness, cabin fever, fear, joy, frustration, and also hope. (Oftentimes, all in the same day!) One of the good things about staying home is that the boys and I get a chance to craft and play more. It's nice having more relaxed schedules.  

Inspired by Emily Dickinson and Embossing Bird's gorgeous IG feed, the kids and I took some strips of paper and folded them into a lovely flock of colorful birds. Here's how we made these cute crafts!

Rain, Flower, and Tree Paper Pull Crafts for Spring!

Last week I shared this really cute St. Patrick's Day rainbow paper pull craft on the blog. Since everyone seemed to enjoy that craft so much, I made these similarly adorable spring-themed paper pull crafts. So you can pull some animals into a tree, raindrops from a cloud, or animals on and off of flowers. Doodle your own images, or like last time, just print and use my doodles.
