Cut out butterfly shapes. Have kids fingerpaint, fold in half and press to make a butterfly.
Have kids paint rocks and attach googly eyes.
Cut out butterfly from contact paper. Have kids help tear construction and then stick on butterfly to make collage.
Songs and Fingerplays:
I'm Bringing Home a Baby Bumblebee
Won't my mommy be so proud of me?
I bringing home a baby bumblebee.
Ouch! It stung me.
Here is the beehive (put hands together)
but where are the bees?
Hidden inside where nobody sees.
Watch and you'll see them come out of the hive.
One, two, three, four, five (lift up fingers)
Play the "Cooties" game
Go bug hunting. Find bugs outside and talk about them.
Bug cookies - decorate cookies as bugs
Ants on a log - cleryk peanut butter and raisins
