Check out this fun activity of painting butterflies and our trip to see real a Butterfly Place mentioned in the book.
The Butterfly Place
The Butterfly Place is a great indoor area to look and see butterflies flying around! You can learn a lot in a small amount of time. If you have one in your area I encourage you to take a look at it.
One thing we noticed while we visited was that the butterflies have the same pattern on both wings. We did this fun painting activity to recreate that effect at home.
What you need: papers with a butterfly pattern on them folded in half, paints, water bowl, paint tray, paint brush.
The girls painted one side of the butterfly.
Then they closed the butterfly to apply the paint to the other side.
We opened up the butterflies to see what we created.
