Today is the first day of Spring. To bring a little springtime into your learning space, visit Bugs and Fishes where there are step by step instructions for this butterfly garland.
With just paper doilies, construction paper, and string, students can assemble these cheerful decorations which look fantastic in the window here, but would also work great across a Spring bulletin board or hanging from the ceiling, if your fire code allows. Bugs and Fishes even provides a template for the butterfly.
Also check out this felt and pom pom mobile variation on the butterfly decoration.
