Description: Well guys, I have another great lesson for you all that will probably be more helpful than entertaining. It’s another tutorial that will be going in the ‘for kids’ section, but to be honest, it’s a great lesson for everyone. Here is how to draw butterflies for kids, step by step. Even though I only made two butterflies, you can choose to draw as many as you want. There is no limit to how many fluttering insects you can draw. As a matter of fact, if I wasn’t making a step by step lesson out of these butterflies, I probably would have went all out and made a fun background and maybe a story to follow the family of butterflies. Anyways, I hope you enjoy this submission, and if you have more time to spare, stick around because there is more drawing fun on the way. Peace out and enjoy!
