This spring weather has inspired us to find some incredibly cool crafts that will help your boys understand the beauty of spring. Spring is a time of renewal, rebirth, and growth. Nothing embodies this more than the metamorphosis of the caterpillar. Every spring hundreds of thousands of caterpillars make that amazing transition from crawly caterpillar to beautiful flying butterfly. The transition isn’t instantaneous but it sure is amazing. 

 

Caterpillars have captivated the world for centuries because of their incredible transition from wormlike caterpillars to flying butterflies. Now thanks to Danielle’s Place an incredible craft corner you and your kids can highlight this amazing metamorphosis in a craft. This craft is incredibly cool and unique. Not only does it show the metamorphosis of the caterpillar, it also allows you to show it again and again.
