We’re in to week 27 of Tuesday Tutorials! I hope everyone is having a great summer, and this week I have lots of fun bug and butterfly crafts to share with you. If you need some craft inspiration to keep the children entertained throughout the summer holidays, why not try some of these! We have been busy making lots of butterfly crafts this week, and I’ll be sharing ours here on the blog soon!

5 Butterfly and bug themed crafts to do with kids, including bug themed lunches, fingerprint bugs and more! Featured on Tuesday Tutorials on intheplayroom.co.ukHere are my bug and butterfly craft features for this week!

Check last week’s features on Crafts to go along with books too if you missed them, as there is another Ladybird craft in there!

If your child is into bugs you might also be interested in the Ravensburger Bugs in the Kitchen game we reviewed recently. It’s a board game with Hexbug nano and I totally recommend it!

Now, on to the linky!

For anyone who is new to our Tuesday Tutorials linky – Welcome! All you need to do is add your posts to the linky at the bottom of the post and they will all be shown across all four host blogs and pinned to our Pintorials group board. We welcome all bloggers and love to see new faces joining in every week so go ahead and add your posts! No need to be shy, we can’t wait to see them!

Every week all four co hosts choose a few posts to feature on our blogs along with the next weeks linky, each with a different theme of our choice. As the number of people linking up each week grows, we hope to increase this and may be able to feature your submissions into separate themed round up posts. I’m pleased this week to have expanded to four featured posts for the sensory play theme. Tell your blogging friends and let’s help to showcase more of your lovely crafts and tutorials each week!

Be sure to visit Eileen, Kate and Gude’s blogs to see the features they have chosen for this week.

“U” Crafts for kids from Gude

Summer Lunch Ideas from Kate

While you’re linking up, please check out the other posts if you have a few minutes. If you can then please leave some comments letting them know that you came through from the Pintorials party, and of course pin your favourite posts.

I hope you liked this weeks features as much as I do! I’m looking forward to seeing what you all have to share with us this week!

A Quick Reminder of Our Rules & Guidelines

    • Link up a few of your suitable posts each week. These can be old or new – it doesn’t have to be something from within that week, but something with a “tutorial” aspect and something pinnable. We particularly welcome crafts (kids or grown ups) and recipes but all tutorials are welcome.
    • Please follow the Pintorials board.
    • And if you could follow the hosts that would be appreciated – We are AnnaKateGude, and Eileen
    • Try to visit at least 3 of the blogs that have linked up and pin something to your own boards
    • Why not comment and let them know you came by from the #Pintorials linky – perhaps they will come and follow you on Pinterest!
    • You don’t have to use the badge below, but if you want to spread the word about the linky then please do or give us a text link or a mention in your linkys list if you prefer. The more people know about the #Pintorials linky, the more can join in and the more pinning we get to do

We can’t wait to see the fantastic and creative tutorials you have to share with us this week!
