Butterfly Life Cycle Craft

Today we read From Caterpillar to Butterfly From Caterpillar to Butterfly  (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science, Stage 1)

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.

I love the chrysalis!

The chrysalis is beautiful. You have some wonderful craft ideas. I also love how they are muliti level. Challenging parts for your daughter, easier parts for your son. Homeschooling together is the best!
