Preschooler kids are always eager to hear new stories.

The best way to involve them in a craft is by letting them know what is the craft all about.

We can easily tell about:

The life cycle of a caterpillar?

Did you know that butterflies begin as an egg and hatch into larvae?

These larvae then turn into pupae, before finally becoming fully grown butterflies!

It’s amazing how much children can learn from this simple craft. 

The simplest way to say is egg, larva, pupa, and adult.

All beautiful butterflies undergo a complete metamorphosis. 

And caterpillars need to eat a lot, and that is how they became hungry caterpillars.


What foods does a caterpillar eat?

They happily keep munching on leaves and flowers.

They love eating plant seeds too.

Yups, the caterpillar crafts are perfect timings to tell about caterpillars.
