Coloring Pages are a fun way to teach about the life cycle of a butterfly.

A butterfly lays its egg on the underside of a leaf. We used buttons in shades of green and yellow for our leaf. We added a sparkly little pom pom for our egg.


When the egg hatches a caterpillar emerges. A caterpillar eats and eats! Try adding some real leaves to your coloring page. As soon as a caterpillar is done growing they form themselves into a pupa or chrysalis. A hole punch created perfect circles for our caterpillars.


When the caterpillar is done changing and forming a butterfly emerges from the pupa. It's tme to decorate your butterfly! We purchased these 8 x10 foam glitter sticker sheets from Michael's. Cutting small triangles develops fine motor skills.  Arranging the triangles fosters puzzle and logic development.


Q-tip painting is an inexpensive way to keep kids creating art all winter. The clean up is quick and easy; no need to wash paintbrushes! All you need are a couple of Q-tips, some paint, and a dot printable (we have tons of those for free!). We started by making some grey paint...

Dot painting is great for fine motor skills, and you can also incorporate letter or number lessons...E is for Elephant.


We had a little bit of spring fever today. We gathered some flower petals and grass from our garden. They made the perfect addition to some spring coloring pages! Coloring can be a fun way to learn about spring and nature. You can use spring coloring pages to teach children about different types of flowers, plants, and animals associated with the season. 

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and what better way to show your love and appreciation for your mom or grandma than by making a personalized card or picture. Choose one of our Mother's Day printables to customize. When decorating your page, pick your mom's favorite colors. Once you're done, you can frame or display your picture on a table or wall.

Arbor Day is April 28th. It's the perfect day to celebrate trees! We found some leaves and a pinecone in our yard. They made a perfect addition to our coloring pages.

Personalize a birthday coloring page for someone special! Use crayons, markers, pom poms, buttons or other objects you have around the house to decorate your page. Birthday coloring pages are great for decorating a plain bag, or as a substitute for a card. 

Hop on over to our Easter coloring pages. Today we placed some coloring pages around our yard for an Easter egg hunt.


Welcome April! We added cotton balls and painted beans to our April Showers coloring page. April coloring pages make a great addition to your weather lesson plans. 

How should we create our rainbow?

You can create a rainbow with your child in many relatively simple ways. Here are ten great things that you can create your Springtime rainbow with:

1. Paint – It might seem simple, but sometimes simple is best. You can create a wonderful and bright-colored rainbow with your child using finger paints or paint brushes. The best part about painting is that you can get different colors to decorate various materials. You can paint rainbows on coloring pages, but you can also get puff paints and make rainbow shirts. You can even paint your rainbows on plates or mugs to share with everyone in your family.
