Paper Foldable.

These are fun to make (with a little perseverance ) Once you've mastered making them you can have endless fun designing and decorating them with your own ideas.

You'll need to use the template bellow for the measurements.


Paper butterflies

These work best with copier grade paper - you don't need special origami paper.

All you need to do is make sure you start with a square ( I used a 15cm X 15cm piece)

You'll also need a pair of scissors to shape the wings.

Once you've mastered the folding you can decorate your butterflies to make them really special.

Why not make you're very own butterfly mobile?

                                             Beautiful  sunflower

To recreate this beautiful sunflower you will need:

  • A piece of paper
  • A toilet roll tube
  • Some cotton buds
  • Something circular to draw around
  • A pencil
  • Some yellow, orange and brown paint (white and black optional)

Butterfly in oil pastel

Year 2's topic of Wriggle and crawl inspired this butterfly, but I hope everyone will enjoy watching this video and hopefully have a go.

I used oil pastel, but you could use chalk, soft pastels, paint, coloured pencil, it's totally up to you!

It's helpful to have a dark pen or felt-tip handy for the fine detail.

Bellow is a blank butterfly template to help you sketch the shape.

                                                   3D   Shading 

Here is a simple way to add a 3D quality to you shading. Adding shadows makes a huge difference!

                                                                                          TOP TIPS

  • Remember to curve your shading with the shape of your object. 
  • The harder you press on, the darker your shading will be.
  • Experiment with a range of pencil grades (let the pencil do the hard work for you!) 
  • Cotton buds are a useful way to blend your shading.


  • HB are the pencils we use for writing in school. HB is a mid grade pencil.
  • The greater the B number, the softer the grade, and the darker your shading will be.
  • H pencils are harder. The greater the number, the lighter the shade you'll achieve. 

                                        Bubbles in coloured pencil.

Draw realistic bubbles using coloured pencil; the secret is to curve all you shading.

(I used a correction pen at the end to highlight ,but white coloured pencil works just as well)

Watch this time-lapse video to help you get started.

                                      Bubble blowing fun!

No paintbrush needed for this activity. Try it with lots of colours.
