The cycle of life. These are fun crafts to do, but also teach about the butterfly’s cycle of life. How a caterpillar changes into a butterfly.


  • Draw a caterpillar with different colour crayons for each circle, and let your little one colour it in. Older kids can obviously draw the entire thing themselves. This activity will teach colour matching. So the green circle should be coloured in with green. Try to give your child the chance to match it himself. This is also a good exercise for those fine motor skills.
