Surround yourself with summertime! Collect your own colorful, symmetrical butterflies!
Look at several pictures of butterflies or watch them if you can. What do you notice about these creatures? Butterflies are beautiful examples of bilateral symmetry. This means that they are the same on both sides, like perfect book-ends. Every spot on the left wing is mirrored by a matching spot on the right. Look carefully to find the other body parts of a butterfly.
Fold a sheet of dark construction paper in half. On one side, use Crayola® Gel Markers to draw one-half of a butterfly's body parts along the fold. Draw the butterfly's wings, attached to the body. Make them large and wide. Butterflies have two wing sections on each half of their body.
Use Crayola Scissors to cut out your butterfly. Unfold the paper.
Use your Gel Markers and Crayola Classic Fine Line Markers to draw colorful segments on the butterfly's wings and body. Leave dark, separating lines between them. For each shape you make on the left side, make a corresponding shape on the right.
Use a Crayola Glue Stick to mount your Bright Butterfly on a contrasting piece of construction paper. Make a butterfly collection!
