Happy Earth Day!
We raised 5 butterflies from our Eric Carle Insect Lore kit and released them today!
We also crawled through tunnels like caterpillars,
and did Do-a-Dot caterpillars.
Find the full color printable here. Older kids can cut and glue the circles at the bottom.
We also listened to some silly songs,
made fuzzy caterpillars with pom poms,
and played with our caterpillar in the chrysalis (Jack in a box).
We knew that butterflies need a temp above 55 degrees Fahrenheit to be released, so we made a sugar water mixture and gave them fruit for two days before it was warm enough.
How did you celebrate Earth today?
