This craft was made with melted crayons.  It was very easy to do and the kids loved all the bright colors.
I did black butterfly cut outs because I thought the colors would 'pop' out, but next time I'd like to try white just to see the difference.

First the kids sprinkled color shreds of crayons all over one side of the butterfly.

Then we folded the butterfly in half.

(The next step an adult does).
Put the folded butterfly in between newspaper.  
Take a heated iron and press on the paper until the crayons are melted.

 Open the butterfly up and look at all the pretty colors!
Attach yellow pipe cleaners to finish the butterfly.
