Butterfly snack in a baggie

We have been exploring caterpillars and butterflies and to add a little fun to our snack time, I set out butterflies in a baggie for the children to make their own butterfly snack…

Inside each baggie the children found…

Apple slices
Pretzels
Vanilla Wafers

I didn’t originally add the vanilla wafers to the baggies but the children said the butterfly needed a body and decided that a vanilla wafer would do!

Each child arranged their butterfly parts on a paper plate to create a butterfly…

There were more pieces in the baggies then the children actually needed to make a butterfly but since this was our snacktime, the children used what they wanted to make a butterfly and then they ate everything all up!

A simple way to make snack time fun…

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
