    How about using the children's hands to create the butterfly wings? You could fold a piece of paper in half and trace their hands - one hand for the top set of wings, one for the bottom. Open the paper and ta da - handy butterflies. You could also do string art butterflies. fold a piece of paper in half. Dip yarn in paint and lay inside the paper. You can do 2-3 colors of paint. Lay all the yarn on the paper at the same time. Fold the top paper down and press on it. Have the students pull the yarn out from between the paper (while you are still pressin on the top ). The results are great symmetrical pictures. Use an Art marker to have the students fill in a butterfly body, head and antennae. Good Luck. Cindy
