Spring butterfly

We worked on this butterfly for a few days.  The wings were a copy from when I taught kindergarten.  You could always just draw the outline of a butterfly and have your child color it.  It was hanging up on A's easel and over two days she colored the wings in with markers.  I cut them out.
I had A paint the egg carton while I held it (she also painted the paper it was sitting on top of) and then she picked out a pipe cleaner.  I hot glued the egg carton onto the wings and then hot glued the eyes and antennae on.  She loved the final product!  I even taught her the words: wings, body, and antennae.
