Butterflies and Flowers at St. Vincent de Paul


This was a project centered around the idea of metamorphosis. Waking up from cocoons and actualizing into a butterfly. The children had a template of a butterfly and cut the remaining decorative paper into designs to accentuate their wings and beauty.

Ephemeral and delicate flowers made from tissue paper and pipe cleaners. Each child followed step-by-step instructions to create these large magnolia inspired colorful flowers. Each flower then was accompanied by a friendly bug that each child drew, cut and pasted.
