Butterfly & Moth Memories and crafts
The morning after we discovered the name of the Painted Lichen Moth from our backyard and released it from our bug box, we borrowed this adorable idea of painted feet butterfly/moth prints from a homeschool friend on facebook. The feet prints were supposed to be opposite feet so the toes went out, but we had fun with the happy accident.

A couple months ago, we made some fun butterfly crafts before we did our annual field trip to the butterfly garden. A cute clothespin coffee filter one, and painted egg carton caterpillars too.
