The Very Hungry Caterpillar

I'm a huge Eric Carle fan. I absolutely adore his books. We own many of them and I read them to the girls frequently, so there's no surprise that many of his books have become their favorites too! At the moment, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, is Izzie's favorite bedtime story. During the day, I've caught her playing caterpillar. She'll wiggle around on her belly (she's a caterpillar, of course!) and munch everything in site. Then, she'll crawl under our big fuzzy brown blanket (her cocoon) and wait, wait, wait...then, she'll burst out of her cocoon and spread her arms (wings) and fly around the house, chanting, "I'm a beautiful butterfly!" Repeat. And, repeat. And, repeat.

So, to jazz up the day and to let her rest her wings, we decided to create butterflies!

Place a pipe cleaner in the center to complete the beautiful butterfly!
