A few weeks ago we made these wonderfully easy butterflies with the children. March was unseasonably warm here in Ontario and we felt we needed a springy bulletin board.
Just this past week when the children were outside for their lunch break, we noticed that there were about 50 butterflies flying around the trees. A few days later there was an article in the local paper that the butterflies had returned earlier than usual because of the warm March weather. It was exciting for the children to see and a great springboard to the life cycle of the butterfly.
