Take one of the paper plates and fold it in half.
Squirt some coloured paint inside the plate. If you find that the paint comes out too easily this way then you can also use a paint brush to put some paint on one side of the plate.
Fold you paper plate in half again and rub your hand across the top of the closed plate to make the paint splat effect. Open the plate back up and leave to dry.
Once the paint on your paper plate is dry cut the paper plate in half along the line where it was previously folded.
Now take your scissors and cut wing shapes into the paper plates, these should be on the straight side, leaving the curved sides of the plate as they are.
Stick the two halves together using double sided sellotape and with the two curved sides connecting.
Next cut the main part of your butterfly's body out from another paper plate. I've done this so that the antennae are on the curved part of the plate and therefore stick out.
Using a black pen draw on a face to your butterfly.
Using double sided sellotape, glue the butterflies body onto the wings of your butterfly craft.
