Day 4 of our Live Butterfly Kit and our caterpillars are growing so big! Little Dude wanted to measure to see how long the caterpillars were compared to his finger. We also noticed today, when the caterpillars move they start with their hind feet first and then move the rest of their body forward in a wave like motion. Did you know they have only 6 legs and the rest of those legs are fake?
Baby girl received some Confetti Play-Doh for Easter and it included a butterfly and a star cutter. We started off making little butterflies and pretending they were flying around. I love how the confetti looks makes them look like colorful butterflies. Then they grabbed their Life Cycle of a Butterfly toys and we started to make animal impressions into the Confetti Play-Doh.
‘The caterpillar and the leaf with the eggs worked best for impressions. Little Dude asked if birds ate caterpillars. When I told him they do, he told his caterpillars he would protect them from the birds.
If you turn the butterfly upside down, you can get a better impressions of the wings. We tried to make butterfly footprints, however the legs were too thin for anything to show. Little Dude decided to bring out his Dad’s old toy Buzz Off from He-Man. He loves this toy, because he thinks he looks like a bad guy and also because it used to be his Dad’s toy.
Buzz Off also made better footprints than the butterfly. After all playing together for awhile, I let them play with the Confetti Play-Doh themselves, which gave me a few moments break.
