Caterpillar tag is a fun game for kids to play at a Butterfly party.  One child is “it” and runs to catch the other children. As they each get tagged, they link hands ending up in a row that looks like a caterpillar.  For an older group you can create a butterfly word find and have the kids compete to see who can finish it first.
