Each month we will highlight a new activity that you can do alone or with your family to remember a person or pet that has died.

This month’s activity:

Memory Butterfly

Supplies Needed:

Construction paper





A common sighting in spring is a butterfly. Let’s make one as a way to remember a person or pet that has died.

Begin by cutting two hearts for the wings. Next, cut a long rectangle for the body and two small rectangles for the antenna.

In the center of the rectangle, write the name of the person or pet you are remembering. On each wing, draw two circles. In each circle draw or write a memory about that person or pet.

Tape the pieces of the butterfly together. You may want to share as a family the memories you chose for your butterfly.
