I decided to teach my 1st graders how to draw it (again, this year!), and then we added lots of different line designs using our sharpies of course.
The students were to color the butterfly with markers, trying to keep two of the same colors away from each other.
Then, we cut them out (with a "bubble" around it), and glued them on yellow paper. You may use whichever color you'd like-but yellow definitely pops for spring.
Next, we added a tissue paper border just for fun and to add texture.
This was a great 2-day lesson, and they look gorgeous!
