I created this collage with the help of a Reception class, to decorate their book corner.
The children prepared collage papers using inks and mark making tools. We spent some time looking at the textures and patterns in Eric Carle’s original butterfly before they got stuck in.
Once the papers were dry, I drew a template for the large scale butterfly and gradually built it up layer by layer. It was a fairly time consuming process but worth it for something that remained in the book corner for the school year.
