Yesterday we spent the day exploring the life cycle of a caterpillar! We learned that a butterfly starts off as an egg, turns into a caterpillar (or spirally pasta noodle), becomes a chrysalis, and then emerges as a beautiful butterfly! We did all sorts of butterfly and other bug themed activities, including making antennaes! Our ANTS (4-6 year olds) also painted with bug swatters and made inkblot butterfly wings. Together, we observed real life caterpillars!
Today, we’re going to explore some other itty bitty friends. They aren’t quite insects, but they’re just as creepy… and slimy!
