More Butterfly/Caterpillar Crafts and Snacks!

Did I say my house was not a mess? Well...after today, my kitchen is! But that's ok, it was fun!
These are crescent rolls, a package of 8 made 4 caterpillars, we used chocolate chip eyes, pretzel antennas and pink sprinkles with cinnamon and sugar.

These are nectar sipping drinks...cups with flowers around, the straw is the tongue of the butterflies.

These were hot glued, so basically, they told me the colors and I glued, but they still liked making them together! (pipe cleaners, pom poms, beady eyes and magnets)
Ok, I think we are DONE with caterpillars and butterflies...maybe! It was a fun 2 weeks!
Now, I am on the lookout for bird snacks and crafts.


  1. What fun!! I just love the nectar sipping cups, those look so cute!

    As soon as we are better we will finish up our Butterfly study! Thanks for all the wonderful additional ideas!

  2. Heres a snack idea for birds, that sounds fun:

    In a large bowl mix together sunflower seeds (the shelled variety for people), peanuts, mini chocolate chips, and raisins. Depending on how much you want to make you can use 1 cup each or equal amounts more or less. Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Meanwhile buy and wash an inexpensive plastic bird feeder-making sure it's completely dry. Serve your "kid feed" in the bird feeder for a memorable snack time! Be sure to take pictures, so each child has one to glue in their Nature Notebook.

  3. Poor birds. I wonder what they think about all this snow. I wonder if you went out in it tonight?

  4. O-o-oh I want to eat one of those catapillers! They look yummy. What wonderful crafts you come up with, Jamie. My granddaughters would love these too. Nerm

  5. Jessica, thanks for the great bird snack idea!! We are going to do that one for sure!

  6. One more idea... Did you see my Easter day post?? Next to my kids baskets, they got little cakes (actually, strawberry shortcake cakes would work good since they have the ridge around the edges!) that were frosted and decorated with green coconut, jelly beans and topped with a peep! Those would be fun as well!

  7. What great ideas, Jamie! I especially love the nectar sipping cups. SO CUTE!
