We also made a butterfly from a coffee filter. Some of my students painted their butterfly on the Mini-Lite Box from APH. I used shiny pipe cleaners to make the antennae, and bright colored clothes pins for the body. We used watercolor paints and brushes. Try not to let the filter get too wet, or wait until it dries to add the antennae. Wrap the pipe cleaner around the body, then twist. I used plastic clothes pins, but you could use the wooden pins and paint them.
If you have a student with low vision or CVI (Cortical Visual Impairment), shiny pipe cleaners can be a quick way to highlight pictures or objects.
