Download one of our printable templates by clicking on the name to access the file: giraffe, butterfly, elephant, flower and kite. Print the silhouette(s) then cut the shape(s) out of the paper. (Your child's initial would also be a fun option for the project. Just print the letter in your favorite font.)
Work all the way around the silhouette, always brushing away from the stencil. We went all the way to the edges and varied the shades of pink around the canvas, but you can let the kids be creative with how they want to paint it.
