The Fuzzy Caterpillar
(Tune: "The Itsy Bitsy Spider")

The fuzzy caterpillar
Curled upon a leaf,
Spun her little chrysalis
And then fell asleep.
While she was sleeping,
She dreamed that she could fly,
And later when she woke up
She was a butterfly!

Try This!

There are so many butterflies flying around in the spring! Bring some inside by making butterflies out of coffee filters. Color filters and then gather in the middle to make wings. Use pipe cleaners for the body! You can also make butterflies by tracing your child’s hands for wings and then cutting those out and gluing on paper to look like a butterfly!
