Cupcake liners come in so many different colours and shapes! Take advantage of the variety to create unique flowers. Add insects to your garden by creating pansy petal butterflies and use the fingerprint painting method in little fingerprint chicks to create bumblebees.

If you wish to bring insects into your garden, create pansy petal butterflies and have some more fun with paint by making fingerprint bumblebees.

We used the yellow and black paint to fingerprint the body and wings. When they were dry, we drew on the black lines and antennae.


As we were adding the insects and bees to our garden, my preschooler and I talked about how bees and butterflies are important for many flowers because they help make new seeds for more flowers to grow. For older children, introduce the term pollination.
