Did you know our Colourfun Markers can be used to create watercolour paint?
You can create a colourful wall of butterflies by using our markers as watercolours!
You will need:
- Colourfun Markers (our Marathon Markers work too!)
- Micador Colourfun Paint Brush (round)
- Micador Painting Paper
- Micador Sizzle Scissors
- early stART Paper Tape
- A cup of water
Step 1: Get Clingy
Secure a piece of clingwrap to a flat surface using the tape. Draw or print out as many butterfly outlines as you need (one per student if creating in a group or a few for one child).
Step 2: make your mark
Using your markers, colour small patches directly onto the clingwrap.
Step 3: Mix it up
With your paint brush, mix a little water to a coloured patch on the clingwrap to make a small amount of paint. Transfer the paint to your butterfly template and start adding colour to the wings.
