Butterflies day 2: Egg on Leaf craft

So today wasn't all about butterflies (only 3 days to go!) but, after our maths and English workbooks, we did do a quick craft for our scrapbook to keep the theme going...

We made a fun craft painting the leaves, then drawing and colouring tiny eggs using photos we found on the internet. It was amazing to see all the different shapes and colours of butterfly eggs there are.

WE cut the egg drawings out and using glue stuck them to the leaf.  I talked to them about how the female butterfly, when she lays her eggs, secretes a special chemical that acts like a glue to secure her eggs to the leaf she chooses.

This was their finished egg on a leaf art...



  1. What's more, what preferred approach to celebrate over with inventive crafts for children? Crafts are extraordinary for instructing the significance behind certain occasions and having some good times all the while.Family tree papercut

  2. These were some really fun facts about butterfly eggs. It is quite amazing how you covered all the aspects so keenly and observed them on the go.
