Eric carle butterfly wings fancy dress costume

These wings make the perfect book week fancy dress costume for kids. The are inspired by the butterfly in The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.

MATERIALS: Cardboard, paint, wax crayons/paint sticks, glue, elastic.

DIRECTIONS: Paint lots of scraps of cardboard with pretty colours and textures. This is fun messy process art and great for little ones. We used paint and then added wax crayon and paint stick textures on top.
