Use this activity to help your little ones learn the butterfly life cycle!
Summer time is the perfect time for bee’s, bugs, and especially BUTTERFLIES!
We recently visited our local science center for an up close encounter with many different butterfly species! Exploring the butterfly habitat was engaging and fun! My son was able to closely inspect his favorite butterfly, the Monarch, by using the q-tip provided by staff. The q-tip’s had been dipped in Gatorade in an effort to tempt the butterflies to flutter down for a “sweet treat.” This was a great learning experience for him, we both greatly enjoyed ourselves.
Inspired by this hands on experience, I decided to dive into the world of butterflies and expand on all we learned. I created a simple Life cycle activity (available for download for free) and also purchased some books about butterflies to add to our home library.

Hope you enjoy!
