butterfly art for the smallies

I have been looking for some inspiration for the weekend and thought this exercise was just perfect.
All I need to do is print out a few pictures of butterflies and pin them to the wall, and let M point out the body parts and see the scale of the wings compared with the body – and then let her off to paint her own…

Tracing around a craft stick will help her create the body. Then she can draw the top wings and then the bottom wings. And then, no doubt, ‘ll be ordered to… ‘get the messy mat mom’ :)

I know she’s gonna love this one as one of her favourite apps on my iphone is Toca Boca’s Paint My Wings
