Sponge printing butterflies

You will need: paint, kitchen sponges (1 per butterfly design), hair elastics or rubber bands (1 per butterfly), paper



Scrunch sponge and tie in the centre with a hair elastic. Squirt paint in assorted colours directly onto one side of the butterfly. You can add some extra dots of paint for decorative patterns (using a cotton bud). Fold and squish together creating a symmetrical pattern. Print the side covered in paint onto paper. Paint in the detail of a body and antennae.
