We once spotted one of the prettiest butterflies in the garden when D was close to 2 years old or so.
Ever since we loved spotting butterflies in all places.
It instantly lifts D and me up even on bad days.
A week back we had gone to Guindy national park and they even had a huge butterfly garden which is a must watch sight if you happen to be in Chennai.
At this stage we aren’t exploring butterfly identification or it’s anatomy.
We just quickly discussed the lifecycle of the butterfly. Thanks to his very first book “ The Hungry Caterpillar”.
This is his dad showing the lifecycle animatedly using his hands.
And this is Lil D trying to imitate his Dad.
I am sure lil D would do the lifecycle object matching in his school and I love how we discuss and do things which is beyond classroom activities 😊
These are the books we have read or to be read from our collection.
