First I had the kids haphazardly watercolor paint some cardstock. Just swish away, doesn't really matter what it looks like, just as long as it's all covered.
Now while those dry, get some canvases...canvi? :)
I gave each kid a different size, big, bigger, biggest.
Have them paint it all one solid color with acrylic paint.
The last step is just glue the butterflies on the dried canvas.
I had them use low-temp glue guns and glue them wherever they wanted.
And that's it!!
Noah's was the biggest and we decided to add a word to his, just for something different. So, after nixing "gun" and "no birds allowed" we (I) decided on fly. Very butterfly-ish.
See?! How fun is this project!? I love how they turned out. And I love how we now have a beautiful grouping of art for our schoolroom wall.
Happy Thursday, darlin's.
