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.
