Colorful Butterfly Experiment

by Lynn Lilly, Jul 21 2022

You already know I love everything Crayola but their STEAM Paper Butterfly Kit is so cool! My daughter Lily thought the experiment and learning how to mix colors was amazing. I had a blast sharing this kit on an episode of Creative Living with Lynn Lilly

Project Materials:

  • Crayola Butterfly Kit
  • Crayola Washable Liquic Glue
  • Scissors
  • Crayola Construction paper
  • Cardboard

Project Instructions:

  1. Put together your butterflies. 
  2. Place 20 drops of dye under each butterfly. You can choose just 1 color or use the color guide provided to mix. 
  3. Fill the provided pipet with water. Squeeze that water into the same area as the dye underneath each butterfly.
  4. Optional: If you would like to add some designs to your butterflies, take your white crayon and draw a design on BEFORE you apply the dye. You will notice that the dye will spread everywhere EXCEPT the places colored with the white crayon.
  5. Cut out a piece of cardboard and a piece of construction paper the same size.
  6. Use your Crayola glue to glue your construction paper to your cardboard.
  7. Choose a photo and glue the photo to the top of your construction paper.
  8. Glue your butterflies to the corner of your photo.
  9. Add anything additional you would like i.e. paper roses, glitter glue, pipe cleaners, trim.
