Our second topic of the summer we chose to read about was butterflies!  Little Bit is all about butterflies, she says they are her favorite! ;)   Here are the books we checked out from the library...

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
Don't Worry Bear by Greg Foley
Fancy Nancy Bonjour Butterfly by Jane O'Connor
Velma Gratch & the Way Cool Butterfly by Alan Madison

These were all such fun books.  I especially loved reading the Fancy Nancy...she is too cute!

We attended the summer reading program at our local library and the first week they talked about The Very Hungry Caterpillar and did a craft.  Here is Little Bit coloring the butterfly that appears at the end of the story.

We made this butterfly craft at home.  I drew a butterfly shape on purple construction paper and had Little Bit cut it out.  {She is getting so good with scissors!  One of many great things she learned at preschool this past year!}  Then she decorated the wings and the body {toilet paper roll}.  We attached them with staples and then added the pipe cleaner antennae.  

I ripped a few pages from various magazines that had butterflies on them.  Little Bit cut out the butterflies and glued them on blue paper.  Then she drew some grass and flowers to create a scene.  Love it!

She is all about doing mazes so I found this butterfly maze for her to complete and we read and talked about the bible verse. 

Next up....princesses
