Butterflies I

June 8, 2009

My girls absolutely LOVE butterflies.  They draw butterflies, make butterflies, dress-up as butterflies, even their room is butterflies.  I really wanted to take an opportunity to explain to them how butterfly wings are mirror images of each other.  What better way to teach them, than to show them?  

Fold paper & draw wings…


cut out…


open up…


slop tempera paint on one side of wings…


fold back in half, pressing all over wings…


open up, and…


taddah!  real-life butterfly wings!
