This year we've been making a spring project book which includes spring stories, gardening, weather and nature study, as well as other spring projects.
One of our favourite spring books is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and we decided to do a project based on the book.
We played games,
we made a butterfly collage using Roses chocolate wrappers,
we used a page from an old copy of the book to make a clothes peg butterfly, inspired by Smiling like Sunshine,
and we cut up the rest of the old book to make more homemade bunting for the play house.
We've also been watching videos and reading about caterpillars and butterflies,
Usborne First Book of Nature by Rosamund Kidman Cox, Barbara Cork and Ruth Thomson
Lifecycle of the Holly Blue butterfly on the cemetery noticeboard
and we found a fun caterpillar, cocoon and butterfly game on Boowa & Kwala.
