Mirror Butterfly Painting with Free PDF Worksheet

It is like looking in the mirror; whatever you paint on the left side of the paper is reflected on the right side. Try making butterflies using dark colours with bright highlights and finish them off with a felt pen for the details.


You can do a lot with colourful paints that you cannot do with crayons, markers and pencils.

YOU WILL NEED: 

  • Sheet of paper.

  • Tempera Paint in a range of bright colours.

  • Apron and cover sheets.


Maybe also

Black marker for details.


Let's get started:


1. Prepare your work area. Lay out newspapers or a cover sheet.


2. Fold the paper in half to make a light crease before you begin. Open it out. You may find some very young children will need to have the paper folded for them.


3. All the painting is done on one side of the folded paper. Try to get some colour along the central fold line. Use bright colours in a random ‘surprise’ effect.


4. Re-fold the paper. Rub the paper with the palm of your hand, trying to work the paint from the centre to the outer edge.


5. Allow to dry. Thick painting may take longer than normal paintings to dry.


6. Add the final extras. Eyes, feet, legs, dots or a nose with felt pens or crayons.


Tip: 

Try not to apply too much paint that will squeeze out of the folded paper. 

​But just enough so it will transfer when pressed together.


Share and Enjoy,

Tony
