Cut two thin strips of blue paper; these will be the antennae, glue them on top of the head.

The strips should be super thin, like shown. 

Curl the strip back and place glue on the end of the strip. 

Add the antennae to the head of the butterfly. 

Draw the outer wings on blue paper.

You should have two wings when done. 

Then, on pink paper, draw two smaller wings cut them out.

Remember, they should be smaller than the other wings. 

For the wing, draw circles and drop shapes on yellow paper.

You are going to cut them out and then glue them on the wings.
