Craft Day- Clay Butterflies!

Craft Day- Clay Butterflies!

We’re in the craft cabin today and we’re making clay butterflies! Does everyone have a seat and their supplies?



  • Scissors
  • Butterfly pattern
  • Exacto knife
  • Oven baked clay in multiple colors
  • Parchment paper
  • Rolling pin



  • Cut out patterns.


  • Warm up the clay with your hands or hooves.


  • Roll out your clay with the rolling pin on parchment paper.


  • Place your butterfly on the clay and cut around it. Be careful with the exacto- ask an adult for help if you need too.


  • Use the other clay colors to decorate your butterfly. Make sure you press these into your butterfly or they can fall off.


  • If you are going to hang your butterfly, use a chopstick to poke a small hole.


  • Bake your butterflies at 275 degrees for 15 minutes.


  • Add magnets or string to your butterflies so they can fly all over!


As always- show us your work campers! Post to Instagram and tag us! Post to our Facebook wall or tweet us! Woohoo!

    Those are very cool. No clay here so we may just make paper ones. We still have to do the bat mask!
