Pre-Kindergarten Monarch Butterflies

The pre-kindergarten students just began their unit on butterflies.  We looked at pictured of monarch butterflies and talked about why they look the way they do. Each student received a large cut out of a butterfly made of coffee filter material.  We used permanent markers to mimic the black markings on their wings.  To fill in yellow-orange of their wings, we used liquid water color and eye droppers.  The texture of the paper soaks up the paint creating a tie-dye like effect.
