How to Make a Butterfly Cocoon

Hands on Butterfly Cocoon - so much fun!

My kids had fun building their own cocoons from toilet paper rolls.  First, they covered the tp roll with construction paper, and glued on a leaf or two. Then they made a caterpillar out of pipe cleaners and goggly eyes, and a butterfly from tissue paper and a small piece of pipe clearer. The caterpillar is attached to one end and the butterfly the other. They enjoyed pushing in the caterpillar into one end and pulling the butterfly out of the other. Cute!
