Butterfly Tot School

Tot School
Love Bug is currently 38.5 months old

This week we learned about butterflies. It was suppose to be bugs also...but we got really focused on butterflies, and that was plenty. 

We are super excited because we are raising butterflies!! 

We ordered a kit from Insect Lore

and also ordered the classroom refill kits from their website directly. We divided up the caterpillars between all of our tot school friends. 

Love Bug and her siblings are raising 15 caterpillars!

This week we worked on our fine motor skills with our Scatterpillar game

 Made AB patterns with some bug erasers (Love Bug is getting really good at AB and we've started adding ABB and AAB)
 Learned how butterflies grow
 Watched a Youtube video of butterflies growing
 Had a butterfly snack (thank you pinterst)
 Made cute butterfly glass hangings with clear contact paper and paper (thanks CH)
 Love Bug's finished piece

 Read the very hungry caterpillar
 and then practice our fine motor again by stringing all the foods he ate

 and learned how to take care of our caterpillars and help them grow into butterflies

We can't wait to see our butterflies, but we have several weeks still!!

We also took a field trip to a local Butterfly conservatory

 So much butterfly fun!!
