An Invitation to Paint

The resources and printables that I make and share here on the blog are always made with my girls in mind, and I like to test them out before adding them here, as it makes sure that they can be successfully used to inspire creativity, play and learning in children.

Here I set up a little butterfly inspired invitation to create. I printed the butterfly mindfulness page on A3 paper to make it easier for Miss 5 to paint.

Setting up the butterfly page with some watercolours can invite your child to paint.

On the table I added in a book about butterflies, some mini butterfly figurines (from a Wild Republic Butterfly Nature Tube), a Collect A monarch butterfly figurine and some water colour paints. Water colour paints are an excellent choice, if you want your child to paint, without all the mess that comes with acrylic paints.

Miss 5 really liked this and sat down straight away to paint the butterflies with the paints. She chose to use the metallic paints, as they are her favourite at the moment and give a nice shimmer effect.

Some other ideas:

  • This page could be printed to use with colouring pencils, crayons or textas

  • Print a copy for your child and yourself, to colour together

  • Use for some grownup mindfulness time - colouring by yourself

  • Put a copy onto a clipboard and take outside on a picnic rug, to enjoy colouring in, in the fresh air outside.

  • If you don't have an A3 printer, you can select poster print and print the design over multiple pages and then use sticky tape or glue to stick it together.

  • Go butterfly spotting outside. You could help your child draw the butterflies you see afterwards.

  • Pair this colouring page with a book about butterflies - e.g. The Big Book of Bugs, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Coco and the Butterfly etc.

There are many ways this could be used, and I'm sure that you could come up with many more.
