Inkblot Butterfly Craft

This is a simple and colorful idea to make a butterfly by using an inkblot technique. You can use chopsticks or lacking that a Popsicle stick. This is a great follow up activity after reading "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle.

Materials:

  • white paper
  • paints and paintbrushes
  • scissors
  • pair of disposable chopsticks attached at one end (or you can use a craft stick)
  • tape

Directions:

  1. Read the story "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". Look at the picture of the butterfly.
  2. On one side of a piece of white paper,  paint 1 large colorful circle and then 1 more small colorful circle above it.
  3. Fold the paper and press down gently. Open again to reveal a beautiful butterfly. Allow to dry.
  4. Cut around the image in a butterfly shape.
  5. Insert the butterfly between the chopsticks and tape to secure. Or tape to a craft stick.
  6. Let students make their butterflies fly around the room.
