Butterfly symmetry painting

Make beautiful butterfly wings using the magic of symmetry!

We’ve spotted a new butterfly in the garden but where are its pretty wings? Can you help it to fly by creating them?

  • How many colours can you see?
  • Where does your butterfly live?
  • Find a real butterfly for inspiration

Make sure you give your new butterfly a name. And don’t forget to show your friends and family all the pretty colours.
