Students show their knowledge of butterfly anatomy—and line symmetry! Sculpt a clay butterfly that is fragile, beautiful, and realistic.
Students find out about butterfly life cycles and anatomy. Choose one species to make their own creature. Decide whether the butterfly will be flying, resting, or getting ready to take off?
On a clean, dry surface, students use their fingers or a rolling pin to flatten a tangerine-size ball of Crayola Air-Dry Clay. Cut out two identical wings with a safe tool such as a craft stick or clean yogurt cup lid.
Roll a small piece of clay for the body. Lightly scratch the edges of where the wings and body will meet with a toothpick. Dampen areas with a slightly wet finger and press together. Use the same technique make and attach antennae and other body parts.
Embellish the butterfly with small bits of clay. Etch the wings with a toothpick. Add a second set of wings to make your butterfly look like it is flying. Smooth out any rough areas with a damp finger. Air-dry the butterfly for at least 48 hours.
Cover the art table with recycled newspaper. Carefully paint the butterfly with Crayola Tempera Paint. Air-dry each color and rinse the paintbrushe before changing to another color.
