As promised some more of our butterfly themed activities.
Caterpillar counting; using different numbers of fingerprints to make the body and our ants on a log game to help us. Download sheet from funhandprintartblog.com
Butterfly leaf art; made during a land art activity we did at our local national trust woodland.
Beaded caterpillars; made with beads and pipe cleaners
Chromatography butterflies; made from coffee filter paper funnels cut along one edge to make a set of butterfly wings, decorated with water soluble felt pens and placed in water to separate the colours into their component parts. Once dry a peg forms the body.
…and finally making butterfly spotting binoculars out of toilet roll tubes for our outdoor butterfly themed activities, my next post.
