Today the excitement over our butterflies continued. We now have 6 beautiful painted ladies !
We played a butterfly dance song and flew around the room
Some kids made a proboscis out of straws and went around the room sucking nectar . That game quickly evolved to sucking blood. Your child may remember what the butterfly’s ” straw ” is. Ask them !
We looked at pictures of butterflies and talked about what symmetry means and then experimented with paint.
I saw some butterfly art .
We did get outside for a bit. It was damp and chilly but we needed to get some energy out. The rain had softened the ground so a few of the kids helped me weed part of our flower bed and plant a couple more plants.
And the health inspector came today. There were no pictures but if I had it round be the look of relief on Holly’s face that she came when I was here. 😬
