I started by having my students cut out the wings and design them and then I walked them through the making of the butterfly body. We finished up by adding the details such as antennae and legs. I really enjoyed this project because it taught science and art concepts, but it also because it allowed the students some self expression; a win/win in my book!
- One 6" x 9" piece of construction paper for the wings (light color)
- Pencil with eraser
- Assorted markers
- Model Magic by Crayola (about the size of a chicken egg), whatever color you want
- 3 pipe cleaners (chenille stems), whatever color you want
