Beautiful Butterflies

Spring is the perfect time for exploration. After reading a book about butterflies have the children create their very own butterflies which you can add to a paper plate or a different material to create butterfly mobiles to hang around the class. This project can be done with any type of material.

Fun fact: The world’s largest Butterfly is called the Queen Alexandra Birdwing Butterfly, while the smallest is called the Western Pygmy Blue.
