Butterfly days getting creative…

As promised some more of our butterfly themed activities.

Butterfly leaf art; made during a land art activity we did at our local national trust woodland.

Chromatography butterflies; made from coffee filter paper funnels cut along one edge to make a set of butterfly wings, decorated with water soluble felt pens and placed in water to separate the colours into their component parts.  Once dry a peg forms the body.


…and finally making butterfly spotting binoculars out of toilet roll tubes for our outdoor butterfly themed activities, my next post.
