Then we colored our own egg carton caterpillars with markers (kind of hard to see the marker in the pictures).

I found these butterfly bead necklaces in the Dollar Tree, and bought them because I knew we could use them during Butterfly Week.  Glad I did because I cut them up and we ended up using them for 2 different activities!

We did a life cycle sequence cut and paste page:
Then, to finish off the week, we made our own coffee filter butterflies!
This week we read:
