The Butterfly Boutique

I had heard from a couple of friends that the Butterfly Boutique in Ocean City was a great place to take kids, to do arts and crafts. My son who is 3 and 1/2 has just started getting into painting and crafting and I thought this place sounded perfect for him, and I was right.


The Butterfly Boutique offers make and take crafts suitable for kids of all ages. Kids can paint anything from a sea shell to Christmas ornaments and small piggy banks


Crafts start at $6 to paint a shell and go up from there. The cost of the project includes use of a smock, all paints, brushes, glitter and other decorations.


On our first visit to The Butterfly Boutique my son was hesitant about making a craft, but the staff was friendly and once he saw all of the options he happily sat down to paint. He was so excited to wear a smock and to pick out which colors he wanted to use. He happily painted a sea shell for about a half hour and then he decorated it with glitter. We decided that the shell would make a great gift for his grandmother who lives at the beach. He was so proud of his project. After we paid we left the project at the store to dry and then took a walk on Asbury Avenue to get a snack. Once we finished our snack we went back to the store and our project was dry.

What I like about The Butterfly Boutique:

  • Variety of craft options at varying prices
  • Affordable crafts
  • Crafts that make great gifts
  • Smocks provides
  • Messy, creative play outside my house
  • Allows kids to be creative
  • Quality paints and brushes provided

My son talked about our trip to the Butterfly Boutique for days after our visit and regularly asks to go back. We’ve already decided that we will be visiting the Butterfly Boutique to make holiday gifts for friends and family.
