Butterflies and moths belong to the order of Lepidoptera. Lepidoptera means ‘with scaly wings’. You can see the tiny scales on a butterfly’s wings under a microscope. The scales are arranged like tiles on a roof and give the butterfly its pattern and colour.
To make the Butterfly mask you will need:
