caterpillars have been eating.

Coffee Filter Butterflies
Set out small containers of water with different colors of food
Lay coffee filters flat. With eyedroppers have children drip
different colors on each filter (not too wet!) Let the filters dry overnight.
When the coffee filters are dry gather the coffee filter in the
middle and clip it into the clothespin. Spread the wings out and you
have a colorful butterfly.
Cut easel paper in the shape of butterfly wings. Paint as usual.
Have children pretend to be caterpillars and crawl into their cocoons
(a blanket draped between chairs). Then when the children come out
they are beautiful butterflies!
Play some butterfly music such as Vivaldi's Spring for the children
to dance to while they are butterflies.
