Try some of the tasks I set on PurpleMash. You can even design your own insect!

 Butterfly Painting


The beautiful patterns on a butterfly’s wings are symmetrical – that means one wing is a mirror image of the other.

To make a symmetry painting, fold a sheet of paper in half then open it up back up. Dab paint on one side of the paper, roughly in the shape of a butterfly wing. Now for the magic – fold the paper and press it down gently, then open it up to reveal a stunning symmetrical butterfly!


This video will show you a bit more

Find butterflies in the wild. Head outdoors on a warm summer’s day and look for butterflies basking in the sunshine.

If you don't have paint, use this sheet to design your own symmetrical butterfly!

Bug Hotel


Explore minibeasts around your own home by designing your own bug hotel. Think about the bugs you would like to see and what those bugs they need to thrive.
