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.
