We had a hoard of caterpillars eating up our cherry tree that spring. Also, we were raising tadpoles. So, in keeping with the theme of metamorphosis, I created a simple toilet paper roll and felt caterpillar and butterfly. It is made using pipe cleaners, pom poms, felt and googly eyes. Aleene’s Tacky Glue was used when needed.

In conjunction with our nature classes, I created the 4 seasons craft foam bath toy. The amazing thing about craft foam is that when you wet it it sticks to smooth surfaces. The drawback with this toy, I made the pieces much too small. If you decide to make something similar, make large pieces and only make a few! Just for fun, some other homemade craft foam bath toy pictures are included.
