13 Easy Insect Arts and Crafts for Kids

Are your kids obsessed with bugs!? Looking for some fun and easy insect arts and crafts for your kids to do this summer?

My 3 year old daughter loves playing with worms and is completely obsessed with butterflies!

And, whether your kids love watching and playing with bugs outdoors, or would rather admire them from afar (or as toys, or as pictures on their clothing); they will love the crafts below!

Plus, summer is the best time to encourage little ones, or older ones, to make crafts based on bugs! This is the best time of year for them to observe real bugs and then can be as detailed, or not, as they want with these crafts.

Insect Themed Crafts

The insect themed crafts below can be made from many common items you probably have laying around your house, such as:

But, some items you may want to plan ahead for, such as googly eyes! Unless of course, if you do a lot of crafts with your kids, you may not have these readily available.

Be sure to check out the post with the craft you want to do, or have your child do, before letting them know about; no kid likes being told they can do a craft, just to find out that you don’t have all of the materials to do it!

Now, for the crafts!!
