Have fun and surprise your friends with Flip Flap Butterflies!

These Flip Flap Butterflies Craft Kits are easy to decorate and exciting to watch. Each set includes two pre-made Flip Butterflies which are ready to be colored, wound up, and set free!

You can either throw Flip Flap Butterflies into the air and watch them flutter like real butterflies. Or you can hide them in books or under things to surprise your friends, family members, coworkers, or students/classmates.

How do wind-up Flip Flap Butterflies actually fly?

Although Flip Flap Butterflies may seem simple, there’s tons of educational value hiding in this easy craft-based activity. To make the Flip Flap Butterflies, simply color the wings and wind them up about 30 – 40 times. After that, you can throw them up into the air to see which direction they will go.

Flip Flap Butterflies are also great for adding excitement to any event. When you wind up the butterflies and put them in books or under objects such as computers or bags, they will magically fly away when someone discovers them.

There’s so much you can do when you get the Flip Flap Butterflies Craft Kits!

✅ Color original designs for two Flip Flap Butterflies

✅ Hide Flip Flap Butterflies in books, greeting cards, and under stuff for a cute surprise to whoever discovers them
