This is an easy Easter card for the kids, in any grade, to make. Because everyone can use the colors they want on the card, you’re sure to get many unique cards. I used colored pencils to color this card, but crayons, watercolors, watercolor pencils or colored markers could be used. The butterflies are left blank on the pattern so each individual can draw in face and wing features.
To give the greeting and the butterflies a shiny look, I used a small artist brush to apply a coat of Karo syrup. I used a hair dryer set on low to hurry the drying process (it only took about two minutes this way), but the syrup will air dry given more time.
