STEP 2: Prepare your butterfly life cycle activity


Now that you have all your supplies, it's time to prepare your butterfly life cycle activity! Since this activity involves using tree seeds, we'll want to make sure the printable is nice and sturdy.

Use the glue stick to adhere the life cycle of a butterfly printable to your construction paper. Make sure to get all the edges so it sticks without coming off!

If you are doing this life cycle of a butterfly activity with a toddler or preschooler you might want to prepare the activity in advance, older children can do the glueing themselves. 

Now is a good time to talk to your child about the stages of a butterfly life cycle. You could look though a butterfly book together or you could even get your own live caterpillars so you can watch as they turn from caterpillars to butterflies.

STEP 3: Go on a seed scavenger hunt


Next is the fun part - the kids are going to love this step! It's time to take your child on a seed scavenger hunt. You're going to look for different tree seeds that look like each butterfly stage.

A few examples might be maple seed pods for the butterfly, birch seeds for the caterpillar, and an acorn from an oak tree for the egg. But those are just a few examples! See what your child comes up with!

You might want to take a book or a few images of the different stages of a butterfly life cycle with you to help your child find seeds to represent them.

STEP 4: Glue your tree seeds to the paper and reflect


For the last step glue the tree seeds onto your lifecycle of a butterfly printable (toddlers and younger preschoolers may need a little guidance). Then, reflect about the different stages of a butterfly and talk about the tree seeds that you found.
