June 2013 Books and Craft

Here are some book suggestions for this month's theme of Butterflies:

From Caterpillar to Butterfly by Deborah Heiligman
The Butterfly by Patricia Polacco
When the Butterfly Came by Kimberley Griffiths Little
The Lamb and The Butterfly by Arnold Sundgaard
Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle
A Butterfly is Patient by Dianna Hutts Aston
Angelina and The Butterfly by Katharine Holabird
Little Butterfly by Happy Books (board book)

Materials Required:
Plastic spoons
Unused coffee filters
wiggle eyes
hot glue


1-Color designs on the coffee filters with different colored markers. The filter paper will spread and mix the colors. A slightly damp filter will add to the blending. (Crayons can be used as well but you don't get the blending of colors)
2-Crimp the middle of one filter with your fingers and lot glue to the back of a plastic spoon right where the bowl of the spoon meets the handle.
3-Glue the eyes to the bowl part of the spoon and draw the mouth.
4- Body sections can be drawn on the handle sections too.
5-Spoons can be placed into flower pots for decoration. Hot glue different lengths of cords or heavy thread to the tops of several spoons and tie to a branch to create a lovely mobile for a porch.
These were made by my 5 yr. old grand daughter. She wants to make lots more!
