We're in Tennessee this summer! We've begun to do a series of themed weeks to help us when we're escaping the heat that we are SOOO not used to. :)
This week, we learned about monarch butterflies and the life cycle of butterflies.
To start off, after a lesson in the letter "C" and monarch caterpillars (youtube helps us learn:)) we made some monarch caterpillar bracelets. We're all about easy and using what we have on hand, so here are the simple instructions:
-yellow, white and black colored paper
-elastic (the thinner the better--mine is too thick to make this as easy as it should be)
1) Roll up one sheet of yellow, white and black colored paper. Glue closed to make a tube.
2) Cut the paper into 3/8" beads.
3) String onto elastic and tie or sew shut
4) Take a picture, then promptly let your 5 year old tear his apart :)
