Six little butterflies happy to be alive
One flew off, then there were five.
Five little butterflies on flowers galore,
One flew off, then there were four.
Four little butterflies among the sweet peas
One flew off, then there were three.
Three little butterflies with nothing to do,
One flew off, then there were two.
Two little butterflies resting in the sun,
One flew off, then there was one.
One little butterfly, now the only one,
She flew off, then there was none.
You can see the pic of the craft. A coworker shared this idea many years ago. I used snack ziploc bags that the kiddos spooned some colored cereal into. They colored the clothespin black. Then the bag and a small piece of black pipecleaner was pinched together in the clothespin to make the 'butterfly'. Instead of cereal you could use shredded tissue paper or sequins. (This is a craft from many years ago ... librarians/preschool teachers don't throw anything away LOL!) Butterflies are a lot of Fun with Friends at Storytime!
