Butterflies are so beautiful and I wanted to capture that in some artwork with my daughter. This painting was a lot of fun for her to explore using different materials together to create a beautiful contrast on paper.

How We Did It

Butterfly Print
We used puffy (fabric) paint for this project so it would be thick enough to create borders on the paper. You can also use glue colored with black paint.
Butterfly Print
I helped my daughter to draw half of a butterfly using the puffy paint on a heavy sheet of paper. Older kids could definitely do this on their own.
Butterfly Print
She folded over the paper and opened it back up to reveal the butterfly. This was very exciting for her!
Butterfly Print
We let the butterflies dry and then got to work adding color with our watercolor paints. They really came to life as we started adding color. I may have loved this project more than my daughter!
