This is a great craft for kids to learn about Caterpillar and butterflies and the different colors they are and the way they move. This would not only be a great summer craft for a summer project but also a good project for doing as a class for an exciting way for the class to explore nature and see how these insects live. Would also be good for a boy or girl scout learning experience. So inexpensive and fast. Any teacher do this craft?
