What you’ll need:

  • Cardboard – use a box that has had a delivery in it
  • Acrylic Paints – a great way to use up left over paint in the shed
  • Paint Brushes
  • Pencil
  • Water
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • A stick

 Always keep an eye on your little one as they play. 

 Step 1:

 Mix together your paint colours – pick any colours you like, we love bold, bright colours.

 Step 2:

 On your cardboard, roughly draw out a butterfly shape in pencil to use as a template, then start painting your butterfly with the paint colours you’ve chosen.

 Step 3:

 Once the paint is dry you’re ready to cut out your sign.

 Step 4:

 Find a good chunky stick and attach your butterfly to it using tape.
