Butterfly window insect craft

It was a sunny day as I was looking through pinterest for an insect craft and this idea came up.

Materials Per Students
x1 Precut Template. I printed the template as large as I could onto A3 green craft paper.
Selection of different colored tissue paper.
Glue stick

Teacher Preparation.
If you have lots of students then staple about 6 printed templates together and cut out in one go.
In Class
Elicit what defines an insect - 6 legs, wings, antenna.
Model how to carefully tear small strips of tissue to cover each hole.
On completion fix the butterfly to a window. If possible one with the sun behind it.
Tell the children when they take the craft home to fix it to a window also.

Click to download the template for butterfly craft from www.minieco.co.uk Lots of other lovely ideas to be be found there too.
