Already Bought My Pasta:
Here is a cool project I do every year. This year, I bought colored pasta so I only have to paint the butterflies:
|This is a page from our kindergarten memory book.|
This year, I got smart & bought colored pasta:
|One sale for $1.00 each, used a $1 off of 3 coupon = 67 cents per box!|
I use pastina (you can find it at an Italian deli) for the butterfly eggs.
I use the curly pasta for the caterpillar. I usually paint it green, but this year I'm using the spinach pasta that comes in the box with 3 different types of pasta.
|There is enough of each type of pasta in the bag for a class of 32.|
I use the small shell pasta for the chrysalis. I usually paint it brown, but this year I'm using the whole wheat pasta.
And I use the bow tie pasta for the butterfly. I'll paint them orange and use White Out for the dots.
And there you have it: The Lifecycle of the butterfly!
|Don't they look cute on the bulletin board?|
These are the pasta colors I have left.
Do YOU have any ideas for me about how to use them? Maybe for my plant or animal unit???
