Simple Butterfly Craft

Crafting with the Pre K and K age group can sometimes be a little tricky. The kids of course are younger and often we are working groups. So, I usually end up with a simpler craft so that all the kids can join in and the activity is relatively hands off!
This is the point at which, I get embarrassed about the state of our windows. Ahem.. it had rained the before, really.. it had.

But as you can see the craft is simple - we "recycled" some old subject dividers that I had. I created basic shapes for the children (aged 1yrs - 4yrs) and they got to use some permanent markers and collored them in to their hearts content.

It is a great activity to span the age groups - as younger children can engage in mark making, whilst the older ones can create their butterflies and ladybirds from scratch themselves... and then colour and cut as well.
