creating a butterfly snack

Our butterflies emerging from their chrysalises are worthy of celebration.  

How do kindergarten kids celebrate?  They eat!

A big thank you to my friend Maureen who runs an amazing adult-child drop in centre and shares her fabulous activities at Maureen's StrongStart, for this butterfly celebration snack.

We started with pretzel sticks, craisins and easy peel oranges.

I showed the kids what Maureen made at her StrongStart centre.  

They were inspired, and set to work.

Before I had time to take more pictures of them creating, our tables were full of butterflies.

We had

butterflies with long antenna

butterflies sipping nectar with their proboscis  

butterflies with cranberry wings and strong antenna

and a very fancy butterfly.

The kids were pretty pleased with their butterfly creations.

And then gobbled them down like turkeys.
