Classic Coffee Filter Butterfly
Supplies Needed:

  • Basket coffee filter or a piece of paper towel
  • Clothespin
  • Small googly eyes
  • Pipecleaner
  • White glue
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Spray bottle with water (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Hold clothespin with grippy end (the part that holds the clothes), facing up.
  2. Glue googly eyes to grippy end.  ( You can also draw eyes on with a marker and add a mouth if you want.). Set aside to dry.
  3. Decorate coffee filter or paper towel with markers any way you want, lines, dots, pictures, etc.  The longer you hold the marker on the filter, the more the colours will spread.
  4. If you like, after colouring the filter, spray with water and watch the colours really spread and blend.  Let dry.
  5. Start at one end of the filter and fold accordion style.
  6. Pinch filter in the middle, bunch it up a bit and put that area in the grippy part of the clothespin.  Adjust wings as needed.
  7. Cut a pipecleaner in half, so it’s not too long.  Bend it into a V and clip it in with the wings.​

Feed the Caterpillar - A naming colours, sorting, counting and graphing activity.

Supplies Needed:

  • 3 - 5 paper towel rolls
  • Paint, markers or coloured paper
  • Googly eyes
  • Pipecleaner (optional)
  • Masking tape
  • Bowls
  • Pompoms​

Instructions:

  1. Make your caterpillars.  Paint the rolls - you don’t need to paint the whole thing. (Use markers or coloured paper if you don’t have paint)
  2. Attach googly eyes on top of the rolls, add a mouth if you want.  You can also add antennas on the back of the roll on the outside.
  3. Attach rolls to a wall or kitchen cupboard or fridge.
  4. Place bowls under each caterpillar to catch the pompoms.
  5. Start feeding the caterpillars!​​

Extend:

  1. Once the pompoms have been fed (sorted) by colour, children can count how many of each colour there are.
  2. Children can also sort pompoms by size, ex. big bigger biggest or small, medium and large.
  3. With older children, you can make a graph recording and comparing the number of each colour of pompoms or their sizes.  They can then talk about, for example, there are three more blue pompoms than green ones.​​
