Life cycle of the butterfly sensory box

I took a clear 99 cent target shoe box and filled with a shallow layer of cornmeal. I added the life cycle of the butterfly figures, some rocks and wood to complete the box. This is a very simple play idea for my science table at preschool this month.

  1. I love your sensory box and the life cycle figures are great. I must try to find some.

    I am hosting a new weekly nonfiction link up called keeping it real and it would be wonderful if you could share this (or any other nonfiction) post with us. http://honeybeebooksblog.blogspot.com.au/2013/04/keeping-it-real-survival-at-40-c-above.html
