#DIY Butterfly Color Matching Game

This is
my simple no sew felt color matching game. It is super simple to make and a provides
hours of fun, depending on how you play. My children helped me make the felt
butterflies and even got in on the painting portion of this project. They love
creating these DIY crafts just as much as they enjoy playing with the finished
project. This DIY felt butterfly color matching game is tactile hands-on fun game
for everyone.

Felt Butterfly Color Matching Game #DIY #Education #GamesForKids #TeachColor

What you need:


in various colors {I used acrylic paint}

felt squares in various colors to match the paint



Butterfly Printable {or you can free hand it if you are so inclined}

How to Make It:

the clothing pins and using the acrylic paint, paint each clothing pin one
color front and back. Set aside to dry.

Next, cut
out the butterfly from the printable and use it to trace the shape directly onto
the felt. Using scissors cut out the butterfly shape you just traced from the
felt pieces. Repeat one for each color.

the paint is dry on the clothing pins you are ready to let the games begin!

are various ways you can play with this craft. For my younger son I have all of
the pieces on a flat surface and I ask him match the clothing pins and
butterflies according to color and identify what the colors are. For my older
son I hide the butterflies around the house and I will let him pick a clothing
pin out of a jar and he has to identify it and then try to find the matching
butterfly that is hidden. The treasure hunt approach is a big hit.

I purchased
a package of clothing pins at the dollar store and bought the paint for less
than a dollar each in the craft aisle at Walmart. The felt can be bought by the
sheet at an arts and craft stores and are pretty inexpensive. I used less than
½ a sheet per butterfly. Since there is no sewing involved it is a pretty
straight forward craft that even the kiddos can help put together.
