This is a great activity for a class as each student can create an element to go on the canvas or wall.
What you need:
- One butterfly outline printed for each student
- Micador Colourfun Markers
- early stART Safety Scissors
- Stylist Watercolour Paint Palette
- Micador Clean Slate Canvas (20x16 inch)
- Craft glue
Step 1: Add some colour
Print your outline and colour the butterfly with your markers. Try spots, stripes and patterns – the more contrast the better the effect!
Step 2: Cut and fold!
Cut out your butterfly then fold each butterfly in half to give a 3D effect!
Step 3: Add some background
Prepare your canvas or wall. We painted a tree trunk using our Stylist Watercolour Palette. You could also paint the background with a blue sky and some green grass.
