BUTTERFLY WINGS

Eric carle butterfly wings fancy dress costume

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

MATERIALS:

HOW TO:

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 oil pastel textures on top.

Cut your butterfly wing base from cardboard. I drew one side of the butterfly, cut it out, folded it over and traced around it to make the other side of the butterfly.
