Butterfly Coloring Pages For Kids

It often seems like people are getting further away from our roots. As the greenery in urban communities shrinks, we may start feeling like our kids aren’t spending as much time in nature as previous generations. These butterfly coloring pages for kids should keep your children occupied while you plan your next family nature hike.

Children are naturally curious about the world around them — and that includes plants and animals. Unfortunately, insects tend to make them a bit antsy (pun intended). In that sense, butterflies, with their non-threatening appearance, can be a great way to bridge that gap. With that in mind, let’s talk about how to make peace with the most numerous animal classes on the planet.

Escape the Cocoon and Spread Your Wings: Lessons We Teach Through Butterfly Coloring Pages for Kids

“My child wouldn’t hurt a fly!” Most parents would like to be able to say that sentence, but how do we make it true? Well, the first step would be removing the fear of bugs most children have. Of course, that kind of anxiety doesn’t come out of nowhere. Our subconscious feelings about creepy crawlies inform our kids’ reactions — so this can be a group exercise!

Our collection of illustrations depicting friendly butterflies can open your children up to seeing insects in a new light. Ultimately, though you’ll have to drive the point home yourself — but we’ll gladly provide some starting points.

Firstly, you could educate yourself — and your child — about some of the 17,500 species of butterflies that exist on the planet. Your toddlers will probably be blown away by the lifecycle of a butterfly. After coming out of their eggs as squirming larvae — or caterpillars — these insects form pupae. While in its pupa, a caterpillar gradually transforms, gaining wings, until it comes out as a beautiful butterfly.

Now, butterflies don’t have many responsibilities to perform. In the weeks or months they have to spend on this planet, all they have to do is find a good leaf to lay their eggs on. Additionally, like other winged insects, they also carry pollen between plants, helping them produce new seeds.

When you’re ready for the next stage of your butterfly education, get your kids and head to the nearest conservatory. While some butterfly houses are private, many allow visitors to bask in the company of various butterfly species. If nothing else, being surrounded by all those butterflies will be a good way to teach your children how to behave around insects.

More Butterfly Coloring Pages for Kids

As you have seen, the coloring page illustrations we’ve presented above are all appropriate for young kids. The happy, cute designs and large coloring fields should make these printable sheets pretty easy to handle. But we’re also aware that older kids might see them as uninspiring too.

With that in mind, we want to give you a few alternative sources to get coloring sheets from. If you have a curious and fearless preschooler on your hands, you could offer more realistic designs from Poulet Galore. On the other hand, if your kindergartner is ready to transition to coloring other insects, check out the selection on Super Coloring.

Lastly, if you just to keep the cute style we’ve shown above while slightly diversifying the range of insects, this page might be a better fit.
