Having given up all hope that the temperatures will ever drop below 90 here in Virginia, we braved the heat and headed to the "Flutter Fantasy" exhibit at our local botanical garden. Here the girls could walk amongst the butterflies...
and hunt for caterpillars.
E was thrilled to be able to hold the creepy-crawlies.
And A enjoyed making one of her own!
This Pipe Cleaner Caterpillar craft is simple, quick, and doesn't require a lot of supplies. Simple give each child three pipe cleaners and a pencil. Wrap two of the pipe cleaners around the pencil tightly to form the caterpillars body. Coil the third pipe cleaner around the end of the pencil, leaving about an inch at the end. Stick the straight end inside the caterpillar body to create its antennae.
