Watercolor Butterfly & Flower Painting

Butterflies and flower are something you see a lot of in spring. We have been studying them the last few weeks. We always study them in the spring. There is so much you can learn about them.

A fun painting activity that we did was this watercolor butterflies and flowers. We used the same technque that we did with the Watercolor Hearts.

The book we read with this activity is A Place for Butterflies . It is great book for learning about some of the butterflies in the North America. These butterflies are amazing to read about. There is even one butterfly that needs burned forests! Who would have known. We talked about that a lot of butterflies need flowers.

This painting project is about butterflies and the flowers they need. This was a great extension to our activity. We also made a trip to the Butterfly Place as apart of our learning about butterflies. We saw many different stages of butterflies and moths. We saw how each butterfly might visit different flowers and plants.

Each of the girls has an idea of what they want to do for this project. They picked out the cookie cutters they would use and making to share all of them. They would have to be patient if the one they wanted was not available.

I like to put the playdough mats in sheet protectors so that I can switch out the pages and save a bit of money by not laminating everything. We use playdough or theraputty.
