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.

Not only does it show the metamorphosis of the caterpillar, it also allows you to show it again and again.
