How to Make a Rainbow Butterfly Craft
- white card stock or paper
- washable finger paint or acrylic paints
Fold white paper in half horizontally.
Pour a little of each color on the paper in different spots on one half of the paper.
Finger paint – let them paint but no long enough to make mud.
Fold the paper together and press together. Then unfold. Let paint dry.
Draw a butterfly shape using a pen and cut out.
You can have the child add a black body. You can also talk about symmetry and a line of symmetry. A line of symmetry is the imaginary line where you could fold the image and have both halves match exactly. A line of symmetry is also know as reflection symmetry.
These washable paints worked great! My 2 yd old loves to paint. she gets it on her clothes and it washes right out. Comes in a rainbow assortment great for other rainbow and spring crafts.
