Beautiful Butterfly

Teach your child about the magic of mixing colors with this simple, quick and GORGEOUS painted butterfly exercise!

Take a sheet of finger paint glossy paper. Fold it in half. Unfold it so you now have a crease down the middle. Have you child pick out their favorite colors of kid friendly paint and help them squeeze some on different sides of the paper. After you’ve put a good amount of dots of color across the paper, fold it in half and start pressing and moving your hands over the paper gently to get all the colors to spread and mix together. Slowly unfold the pressed paper and watch you child’s face as a gorgeous butterfly appears from their favorite colors.
