Butterfly Story Time!

Posted on March 23, 2016 at 11:03 AM by Christina Stuck

We have been enjoying butterflies during our story time this week. I wanted to share an extra butterfly song you can do with your child at home. What is so wonderful about this song is that you are teaching your child about the transformation of a caterpillar. You can probably go on caterpillar or butterfly hunts while singing this catchy song!

"The Little Caterpillar"
(It goes to the tune of "Itsy Bitsy Spider")

The little caterpillar crawled up into a tree,
Spun his cocoon and slept so quietly.
All through the winter, he didn't make a sound.
He dreamt of his new life when he'd be flying all around.

While he was sleeping, the snow did gently fall.
Winter came and went, then she heard the robin's call,
"Come Mr. Butterfly, out of your cocoon.
Spread your wings and fly for me, while I sing my tune!"
