As the weather begins to warm up, you’ve probably noticed some more color popping into your days, whether it’s the lush green grass growing in your front lawn, the flowers blooming on the side of the road or the butterflies fluttering amongst the trees and flowers. From their delicate wings to their vibrant colors, butterflies are an enchanting part of the spring and summer months. In addition to the beauty they add to the days, they also can provide plenty of lessons for kids. In these 20 blog entries you can find guidance in the form of lesson plans, crafts and worksheets.


While you probably know the basics of how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly, sometimes it’s nice to have more information to supplement what you know when teaching a concept to kids.  These five blog articles will recommend some books to read, as well as offer ideas for how to teach your kids about butterflies and their life cycle.


There are lots of craft projects that feature butterflies, but it’s important to point out the different features of a butterfly while you are doing the craft so that you can tie the science into your lesson.  The crafts in these five blog posts are simple and allow you to talk about the different components of the butterfly.


To reinforce your butterfly explanations to the kids, you may want to have a print out of the lifecycle and some fun puzzles that they can do.  Keeping with the theme, you’ll find a maze and a color-by-number sheet on these five blog entries.


While butterfly snacks are not required when talking about butterflies, they sure can be a darling tie-in to your discussion about them.  All of the snack ideas found on these five blog articles are healthy snack choices for the kids that will add a fun twist to snack time.
