What You Need
- orange, black, and white face paints
- sponge (optional)
What You Do
STEP 1: PAINT YOUR HANDS ORANGE
Cover the backs of both your hands and wrists with orange paint. (You can sponge the paint on or use a paintbrush.)
STEP 2: CROSS YOUR HANDS
Once the paint dries, cross your hands in front of you at the wrists with your palms facing you.
STEP 3: CREATE WINGS AND BODY DETAILS
Have a parent or friend create butterfly-wing shapes by outlining your hands and part of your wrists with black paint, as shown. Continue using the black paint to add a head, body, antennae, and wing markings.
STEP 4: ADD DETAILS WITH WHITE PAINT
After the black paint dries, add two white eyes and white dots on the wing outlines, as shown
TIPS & TRICKS
- Use only paints made for the face or body. Even “non-toxic” craft paints can cause a skin rash.
- Some paints can rub off. You may want to wear old clothes and be careful about what you touch.
