Today we read:
I Like Butterflies
Because butterflies taste with their feet, we also read:
The Foot Book
What Neat Feet!
We let the girls make footprint paintings.
Then, I gave each of the girls a party blower - so they could understand a butterfly's mouth part.
After that, the girls drank some applesauce (butterflies drink nectar through a straw-like proboscis)
Butterflies feel and smell with their antennae. I wanted to make antennae for the girls by using headbands with pipe cleaners attached, but I didn't feel like going to the store, so they just held straws on top of their heads instead.
