The Very Hungry Caterpillar

We have so many butterflies at our place at the moment that the boys and I caught one in our bug catcher so we could look closely at the patterns on its wings and the colours. While looking at the butterfly it was a great chance to show Master 4 how the patterns on one wing were the same on the other. (Symmetrical) Never one to pass up the opportunity to do come craft we got busy...
Using a butterfly template add dots of coloured paint to one side of the template. (Best to fold it in half first) Then fold the butterfly in half and gently rub in the paint. Unfold the butterfly and wow what a beautiful sight! It's also perfect to use when looking at the Life Cycle of The Butterfly. I purchased this Life Cycle of a Butterfly set that gave Master 4 a good visual understanding when he was placing the cycle in order. (You can always use cut out visual aides) http://http//
