|Butterfly Life Cycle Mobile |
- Many colors of construction paper, oak tag, or gift wrap
- Yarn or string
- Glue stick
- A sturdy paper plate
- Markers, crayons, or paint
- Stapler or tape
|Draw a spiral on a paper plate. Cut along the line.|
|Decorate the paper plate using markers, crayons, or paint.|
|Using green construction paper, draw a leaf and cut it out. Either draw tiny butterfly eggs on it or glue on tiny paper circles (either cut them out or use a hole punch to make some). A cluster of butterfly eggs are usually laid on the underside of a leaf; the eggs are white or yellow or greenish, and are circular to oval.|
|Draw and cut out a caterpillar (the egg hatches into a caterpillar, which spends its entire time eating leaves). Decorate it.|
|Draw and cut out a pupa (the stage during which the caterpillar makes a protective case around itself and turns into a butterfly). Decorate it.|
|To make butterfly wings, fold a small piece of paper in half, and draw half a butterfly along the fold line.|
|Using dark paper, make a body for your butterfly (it's basically a long oval with a circular head). |
Glue the body to the wings and decorate your butterfly.
| Staple or tape the stages in the butterfly's life cycle to string and then to the paper plate. |
Attach another short length of string to the plate; it will be used to hang the mobile up.
You now have a great buttefly life cycle mobile.
