You can download the template below – it is one piece of A4 with two sides – though if you can’t figure out double-sided printing – just print Side 1 and draw your own Butterfly Garden on Side 2!

 Side 1  & Side 2

Draw your own garden if you haven’t printed side 2
Place the paper onto a flat surface with Side 2 (the Butterfly Garden) face up. :

2. Fold the paper in half length-wise and mark the edges of the fold as shown in the next two images. You will use these marks later: 


3. Fold the page in half across. and make a sharp crease:

4. Open the page out and fold the outer edges in to the middle crease as shown, and smooth down the new folds:

5. Open out the page again and fold the long edges into the centre as shown, using the crease marks that you made earlier:

6. Fold the edges into the middle as shown below:

7. Fold in half – your mini Butterfly Book is now complete for you to colour in and enjoy:


Can you work out how to make the Butterfly fly and do you know what the different languages are “all around the world”?
