*when finished the butterfly folds accordipn style down into a "caterpillar"
Butterfly Life Cycle Chart- cut into strips small enough to glue to individual Popsicle sticks
Basic How-To Here (use the 2nd craft listed for caterpillar-to-butterfly model)
Construction Paper (to make antennas) - I could not get pipe cleaners to glue and stay put for anything!
Pipe Cleaner for body and pom pom for head
Sharpie (to draw wings before painting)
Various Paints & Q-Tips - To dot on colors onto wings
Mod Podge - to cover over Life Cycle Chart so it stays put
This craft was mainly one that I did, having my son dot on the colors of the wings. He wanted to do this craft but I knew he would be impatient for each step to dry/finish.
In the end, this is a craft that doubles as an activity and also a teaching tool for the life cycle of the butterfly and metamorphosis
