Dance of the Butterfly

This Spring we watched our caterpillars grow, change into chrysalis and emerge as butterflies.  It is such an awesome transformation to watch.

This year, Amanda caught one of our butterflies as it was emerging!  It is so cool, we wanted to share it with you.  Enjoy!

Dance of the Butterfly

What you need:
Dancing ribbons You can make your own!  Follow the directions in this past post.
Music such as Spring by Vivaldi

As the music is playing make your ribbons dance like a butterfly.  You can also do other spring motions such as a newly hatched bird and a spring breeze.  The ribbons are perfect for dancing to spring!
