Spring Butterflies

Always a crowd-pleaser, I did butterflies with the younger kids. This taught symetry, wax resist and watercolor.

I had the kids fold their paper in half and draw their butterfly on one half with oil pastel. Then they used a spoon to transfer the half-butterfly onto the other side. Some had to draw over their faint lines, but that is okay!

Then they used watercolor to fill in the blanks and the oil pastel showed through.
