You may have noticed on the VBS post below the fun bug displays made my daughters and myself. Here are the project directions. This could be a fun science or art project to add to your homeschool lessons or even a summer project.
- Pictures of Butterflies out of books or magazines.
- Tracing Paper or Light Tracer or a bright window and tape.
- Watercolor paper
- Good Quality watercolors
- Paint Brushes
- Jar of Clean Water
- Napkin (for cleaning and drying paint brush)
Step 2: Using your photos as a guide, begin painting your butterflies. Take your time and really examine the colors. Don't add to much water if you want brighter colors.
Step 3: When you are finished you can attach bobby pins to make hair pins, glue them to a board and frame them or come up with something else creative to do with them. How about a 3D birthday card? Link back with your completed butterflies!
