Boo Boo Butterflies

I found this great craft over at storytime katie and pinned it right away
knowing that I would be using it sometime soon.
We called them Boo Boo Butterflies
because you use a tissue and bandaid.
 A very simple craft that even the littlest ones can do
with little help.
And decorate.
I really like crafts that are this simple and I hear parents say,
"I could do this at home".
You could even do this in the car on a road trip.

Build a Butterfly Snack

We made butterflies for snacks today.

There were also raisins and cheerios to make designs on the butterflies.

An interesting conversation started when I asked 
"What do you think eats butterflies?"
The look on some of the children's faces was like what would eat pretty butterflies??
 We looked it up on Google and learned that ants, wasps, snakes, birds, toads, rats, lizards and most surprisingly - monkeys.
