Minibeasts: Beautiful Butterflies

Our garden is awash with lovely blooming Spring flowers at the moment and so now we are seeing some lovely minibeasts in the garden as a result. Today was our first sighting of a lovely fat bumblebee and this beautiful butterfly which landed on our outdoor kitchen earlier this week which served as the inspiration behind todays butterfly activities. The children made some lovely tissue paper butterfly sun catchers, enjoyed a lovely butterfly puzzle, had fun with butterfly stickers, looked at butterflies in books and watched an episode of Mr Tumble, who was at a butterfly farm, on CBeebies.
