Butterflies are FUN!!!!

Ediable Butterfly Lifecycle
The Butterfly cracker is the butterfly, marshmellows are the eggs, a gummy worm is the caterpillar and the chrysalis is a tootsie roll! YYUUUUMMM!




This is ONE of my FAVORITE things to do! Using sticky foam die cut an egg with a HOLE PUNCH, a caterpillar with a SWIRLY diecut, a chrysalis with PEPPER die cut and then the butterfly with a BUTTERLY punch! The kids each get to make one and they love telling the lifecycle to anyone that ask them about the bracelet!
This is a really fun way to reread The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Give each student the small retelling pieces, punch a hole in the middle of each piece and as the caterpillar eats the item in the story they string the piece onto a pipe cleaner! OF course we use glitter ones! Who does NOT like glitter???



These pictures are in the reverse order! Die cut a WHITE butterfly. Then the students use torn tissue to decorate their butterfly! We added these to the top of some pretttttty amazing butterfly writings!!!!!
