Spring is a wonderful time to focus on the life cycle of a butterfly and to do caterpillar and butterfly activities. The photo is from a post Spell Outloud recently published with butterfly life cycle materials and related activities.
The post from Spell Outloud used the Montessori Print Shop toddler butterfly life cycle cards and book, but Montessori Print Shop has lovely butterfly materials that are appropriate for preschoolers through early elementary as well. Montessori Print Shop also has clear instructions for preparing and using 3-part cards and for preparing Montessori books.
