Clothespin Butterfly
This is an oldie but goodie craft that you can't go wrong with.
We took a coffee filer and colored it with marker. Then dripped water on it to spread the marker color.
After it dried we attached a clothespin that the children had colored green and drew faces on.
Then attach a pipe cleaner for the antenna's.

Crayon Butterfly
This is one easy, but you need an adult to help.
I cut out a butterfly template and folded it in half to make a crease.
Open up the butterfly.
The kids put crayon shavings on one half of the butterfly.
(next step is for the adult)
Fold the butterfly in half and gently iron to melt the crayons.
(I put it between dishtowels).
When you open the butterfly, you have a lovely display!
We drew faces and attached pipe cleaners for antenna's.

From Caterpillar to Butterfly
(tune: Clementine)
Caterpillar, caterpillar,
eating leaves and crawling round;
you are big and so you make a
chrysalis far off the ground.

Caterpillar, caterpillar
you are such a big surprise.
You have wings and you're so lovely!
Oh, I can't believe my eyes.
