Best Butterfly Gifts For Pre-teens

Updated on December 30, 2014

Cool Butterfly Gifts for Creativity & Fun

Fluttering butterflies are one of the first bugs that most children can identify. They may be similar in shape, but they vary enormously in color.

The beauty of butterflies has inspired jewelers, craft designers and toy makers for years. They have produced beautiful craft and art ideas to stimulate creativity, butterfly kites to encourage exercise, and challenging butterfly puzzles, as well as gifts just for fun.

Finding cool birthday gifts for tweens and pre-teens can be expensive, challenging and time-consuming. If your pre-teen is interested in nature and wildlife, you will find some great ideas on this page.

Just like the butterfly, I too will awaken in my own time.

Crafty Butterflies

I like to make things. Whether it be crafting or completing a puzzle, I find it relaxing and enjoyable. In fact, mental challenges are thought to have beneficial effects on the health of the brain, perhaps even staving off Alzheimer's.

In these days of high-speed, super-charged teen life, why not encourage your pre-teen to "slow down and smell the roses". Puzzles and crafts can give hours of fun for one person, or for the family, and you could be helping to set up a good habit for a life time.

Cool Butterfly Jewelry and Jewelry Boxes

Bug jewellery - a bug necklace or bug earrings - can be a great gift for a nature fan. Bees have an air of risk and danger. Ladybugs are just plain cute. Beautiful butterflies have an air of tranquillity and peace, reflected in the pretty design of the butterfly mood necklace.
