The Fuzzy Caterpillar
(Tune: Itsy Bitsy Spider)

The fuzzy caterpillar
Curled up on a leaf,
Spun her little chrysalis
And then fell fast asleep.

she was sleeping
She dreamed that she could fly,
And later when she woke up
She was a butterfly!

The Butterfly Song
(Tune: Up on the Housetop)

First comes a butterfly and lays an egg.
Out comes a caterpillar with many legs.
Oh see the caterpillar spin and spin,
A little chrysalis to sleep in.

Oh, oh ,oh wait and see!
Oh, oh, oh wait and see!
Out of the chrysalis, my oh my,
Out comes a beautiful butterfly!

Easter Ideas and Links ...

This idea is so cool. I am definitely going to be making this for my daycare tomorrow.
The kids are going to love it. They love doing stuff now with writing and sentences.

This is an adorable game....
