Sun Catcher

I love butterflies. They flutter by so freely with no effort at all. I found this neat craft on and thought it would be the perfect craft for summer time. It's a beautiful sun catcher made from tissue paper and card stock. I think you could use cardboard as well.


Books related to our topic:
"A Kid's Guide to Attracting, Raising, and Keeping Butterflies. In addition to practical information, this attractive, 40-page book has interesting science information. For example, chemical sensors on butterfly feet allow them to "taste" leaves. 21 species are described with the regions of the US and Southern Canada where they may be found. One sentence I disagree with is. "No one knows why the dinosaurs died out. . . ." 1997, from John Muir Publications"

"This book is the perfect accompaniment to spring! Even if you can't bring a caterpillar into your classroom, you can still share the magic and mystery of their turning into butterflies with this wonderful book. The tone is so kid-friendly, kids will be learning without even realizing it. A great resource!"
