Little Sprouts Thursday April 23rd

Happy Thursday Everyone! Have a wonderful weekend!

A friend told me about granular gratitude, appreciating the small things. Can you think of something small in your life that you are grateful for? Tell someone in your family. I am grateful for having meals with my family and the sound of birds in the trees.


Do you remember the life cycle of a butterfly?  It’s like magic! How does a caterpillar become a butterfly? Metamorphosis! Look at the pictures,

can you name all the different stages that a caterpillar goes through to become a butterfly?

It is so hard to see a real butterfly up close because they move so fast! If you have a magnifying glass at home, see if you can see all of the details in these pictures.
