caterpillar clip! These little guys have been popping up all over. We continued on with the caterpillar theme by putting together a few caterpillar puzzles. We have two Eric Carle puzzles and this little love bug one:
As we all know, caterpillars become beautiful butterflies so we painted some very colorful ones. I was inspired by Jill's awesome craft. I started out by folding some white paper in half and then reopening it. Eva then squirted paint in various parts of the paper. (She couldn't quite understand keeping the paint to one side of the fold but it worked out fine.)
Check out this book if you want to read more about the life cycle of butterflies. The illustrations are gorgeous and the language is toddler-friendly.
