Butterfly Canvas

I wanted to share this piece that the girls and I made over the winter time, I'm just now getting around putting it on here. It was super easy just have to have some patience (which I don't have) for the glue to dry.

All we used was stuff we had around the house, $ stores, michael's and thrift stores.
  1. First paint your canvas board whatever color you want.
  2. Hand draw your butterfly or other animal you want.
  3. Here's the fun part just start putting glue (i used elmers glue)  inside of the butterfly outline and get the kids to help putting things on it wherever they want it. It makes the kids your their imagination and gets them creative. The girls had a blast doing this project!
  4. Once everything was on the canvas I just starting putting glue all over everything it dries clear anyways and they helps hold everything in place.
It doesn't have to be perfect, the kids will just be happy they made something with mom!
