We have been exploring caterpillars and butterflies and to add a little fun to our snack time, I set out butterflies in a baggie for the children to make their own butterfly snack…
Inside each baggie the children found…
I didn’t originally add the vanilla wafers to the baggies but the children said the butterfly needed a body and decided that a vanilla wafer would do!
Each child arranged their butterfly parts on a paper plate to create a butterfly…
There were more pieces in the baggies then the children actually needed to make a butterfly but since this was our snacktime, the children used what they wanted to make a butterfly and then they ate everything all up!
A simple way to make snack time fun…
