Remember when Kinsey found a chrysalis in the backyard? Well, it only took a year later but she was wanting to learn about butterflies, and I obliged ;) Affiliate links used. A small commission may be received if you purchase an item through my links. Thank you for supporting my blog!
The very first thing I do is pull every book we own and these are the ones we have been reading.
DK Readers L1: Born to Be a Butterfly//The Very Hungry Caterpillar//Scholastic Reader Level 2: Butterflies//Who Lives in the Garden? //Butterflies in the Garden//Butterfly Life Cycle//Beautiful Butterflies (Sparkle Bugs Adventure)
We did an easy but pretty tissue paper craft. I've done this method before for TTBH # 5 but I recently found a roll of Contact paper and
decided to forgo the use of a glue wash wised up. I just cut out a butterfly shape and had Kinsey apply the tissue paper squares.
I made these little guys out of construction and scrapbook paper. The holes at the top of the butterfly's wings correspond with the number on the front for some counting aide.
We were on a walk and saw this little guy make it across the road (at a very fast crawl as it had just survived a school bus encounter, hehe) but neither Kinsey or I had the nerve to pick it up. A google search has me torn between it being a giant leopard moth or a black swallowtail butterfly. Any guesses?
