Kaleidoscope Kids Tutorial with Deanna, showing how to make butterfly stencil

Deanna Molinaro shares her Kaleidoscope kids crafts

Deanna created a Kaleidoscope Butterfly painting that was featured at the MiaThrives 2019 Kaleidoscope Gala. It was a night of celebrating the arts within the EB community. One of the techniques she used to create the artwork was a stencil. Deanna shows step by step how you can create a butterfly stencil at home! Join us for another of our Kaleidoscope Kids crafts!
