B-Butterfly Plan

B-Butterfly is an amazing week!! We have so much to do I think we might do more than 6 days. We'll see.

Here are some of the things I gleaned from all the great ideas I've seen from the forum and the internet

Crafts
Grocery bag wings (use grocery bags to make butterfly wings)

tissue butterfly
caterpillar becomes butterfly craft
Paint a butterfly

Sun catcher (thanks to a gift from a friend)

Life Cycle
Nice photos here
Other info of the butterfly and here
Make cards and a poster
Activity (from the manual)
Pasta poster (got from the forum)
  -egg (rice)
  -caterpillar (rotini)
  -chrysalis (shell)
  -butterfly (bowtie)

Snacks
Flutter-By Franks (got this from the forum)


1 tube (8 oz) refrigerated crescent rolls
4 hot dogs (or turkey dogs, if you prefer)
Ketchup & mustard

Unroll crescent dough & separate into eight triangles; cut each triangle in half. Roll each piece into a ball; flatten to 1/2-inch thickness. For wings, place four dough balls in a square shape 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Cut each hot dog length-wise 1/3 the length of the dog (makes the butterfly antennae). Press a hot dog between each set of wings.

Another snack here

Lunch idea: use sandwich, carrots etc to make butterfly
