Butterfly, Butterfly

Today we read:

I Like Butterflies
Flying Colors

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.
