One of my favorites has to be the classic craft stick toy. If you take you butterfly and glue it on a wooden craft stick, you can parade your butterfly all around the house.

You can also make some more butterflies for some custom made room decor. You can either tape the paper butterflies to the wall or tie some string on them and have them hand from the ceiling, creating your own butterfly garden.
