B is for Butterfly Activity

A fun self guided play and learn activity for preschool and tot school.

LETTER OF THE WEEK A-Z SERIES: B is for Butterfly Craft and Activities including a free letter B craft printable

Free Printable: 1-20 Number Mat or Cards

Objectives: Counting, Numbers, Sorting, Sensory Play, Fine Motor Skills

Age Group: Preschool/ Tot School

Supplies:
Bow Tie Pasta (We used multi colored pasta-I couldn’t find the same type on Amazon so you may want to pick up a bag from your grocery store or dye your pasta before the activity)
Small containers
Toilet paper rolls
Fine motor skill tools
Counting mat



Directions:
1.  Place the supplies on a tray and let the child explore, play, and learn. It’s really as simple as that.

Mr. Tickles (age 1.5) loved putting the butterfly in his toilet paper tube and watching it disappear and reappear when it slid out the bottom. He also loved putting his hand in his bowl of butterflies and stiffing them around because they made a fun sound and felt different on his hand.

 

He stayed busy using his scoops to put butterflies in small containers, dumping them out, and doing it over again and again. As always, he tried to eat our activity but since it was hard pasta he only tried once and I didn’t worry because it was just dried pasta. I like to try and keep our toddler activities edible.

 

Ms. Tiger (age 3.5) sorted her butterflies in containers and made them each a little bed to sleep in. After playing for awhile she also put her butterflies on her counting mat and we named the numbers together.

 

I love watching my kiddos play and learn together!
