DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Butterfly Flier Craft Instructions and Templates

This is a very different toilet paper roll craft than most.   It ends up "larger than life" (about one square foot) and is fun to play with.  If you look closely at the photo, you can see the toilet paper roll in the center of the butterfly's body...  That will give you a feel for the size of the finished craft.   Pull the yarn (takes two people) and the butterfly will fly between the players.

Although younger children (Age 2 thru 5) will have fun colouring the pieces (at least some of them), the craft is really more suited to Age 6+ as it's quite a bit longer of a project.  If you don't mind doing some of the crafting, by all means do it with younger children (I did!).  They'll get a kick out of the finished product.  However, children will need to be at least 6 to do it with limited adult help.
