Butterfly Toys For Children Aged 5 To 7 Years

Updated on February 3, 2015

Cool Butterfly Toys For Fun And Creativity

I really love butterflies - they are beautiful, graceful and delicate creatures. They flutter past, catching the attention of both adults and children. They have inspired toymakers to create and design a wide range of cool butterfly gifts. I have included the most popular and top-rated butterfly gifts and toys for youngsters, aged 5 to 7 years.

At this age, you may want an educational aspect to the toys you buy, so I have taken that into account. My top suggestion is the Live Butterfly Garden - a wonderful project to introduce children to the world of butterflies. The photo shows a Painted Lady Butterfly just like the ones that will grow and develop in the Butterfly Garden.

On this page, you will also find butterfly mosaics to stimulate creativity, butterfly guitars to encourage musical skills, a butterfly diary to encourage writing, as well as toys just for fun.

Insect Lore Live Buttefly Garden - How cool is that!

This really cool project is fun and educational too. With the Live Butterfly Garden from Insect Lore, children have the opportunity to watch butterflies develop through the stages of their lifecycle. The real caterpillars will eat and grow in size. After 7 to 10 days, each caterpillar will form a chrysalis. After another week or so, the butterflies will then emerge as a Painted Lady butterfly. As well as feeding the butterflies, in the pop-up observation habitat, children can eventually release them into the wild.

The Butterfly Garden observation habitat is a 12 inch tall cylindrical mesh container. Once transferred to the habitat, the chrysalides can complete their metamorphosis into adult Painted Lady butterflies. When the butterflies finally emerge, they can be fed with sugar water. Children can add flowers into the habitat for the butterflies to rest on. Butterflies will live for 2 to 4 weeks in the mesh habitat, if look after carefully. In the warmer months, when the temperature is above 55 degrees, children can experience the thrill of releasing their butterflies into the wild.

Daisy Rock Debutante Butterfly Electric Guitar

A great electric guitar for beginners. These guitars have many of the features found in the Daisy Rock line. They have the trademark "Slim & Narrow" neck, which is great for girls with smaller hands who want to learn to play. The body is lightweight, and the colors are eye-catching colors. The Butterfly electric guitar comes complete with a stylish gig bag to transport such a beautiful guitar.

A left-hand version is also available, see column on right.

Lightweight construction, with "Slim & Narrow" neck design makes it easier for little girls with small hands to play. Has a shorter, more manageable 22.5 inch scale, which is more comfortable for younger, smaller girls.
