Butterflies and Bugs

It's a lot of fun to let preschoolers experiment with paint.

I gave the children butterfly and bug shapes cut from colored paper. I also gave each a "palette" with several different colors of paint on it.

The children splotched and painted their bugs. And then...

They folded them in half and rubbed them with their hands.

Viola! We have some really beautiful art to hang on our classroom wall for Spring!
