Spring is here. Our vegie patch is finally getting a wiggle on and the cabbage moths have arrived. I’ve been cursing them and The Big Sister has been marvelling at them. It’s a very good lesson in perspective – one woman’s cabbage moth is a little girl’s butterfly.
So, I decided to dive into some cabbage moth inspired craft. The Big Sister loves life cycles at the moment, so we spent Tuesday morning constructing a Butterfly Life Cycle from stuff we collected from the garden.
I asked her to name the life stages and we drew them onto our paper, then we went about making them from leaves, sticks, nuts and flowers.
Here’s our handiwork.
It was a nice way to spend the morning in the garden & amuse the Big Sister quietly while the Little Sister had a sleep.
I’m loving the weather at the moment. What’s your favourite season?
