Today we read From Caterpillar to Butterfly
and made a life cycle of the butterfly.
Our caterpillar eggs are tiny pompoms we glued to a leaf
Aiden glued pompoms together to make a caterpillar.
To make the chrysalis, the kids covered a plastic egg with white Crayola Model Magic, added a hook screw to the top before the clay dried as a way to hang it, and painted it brown.
Our butterfly is also made out of a plastic egg. Emily cut out the wings and I assembled everything with the hot glue gun (head, antenna, and proboscis ~ we didn’t want him to get thirsty!).
We hung everything on a tree branch that I attached to the wall.
