We will play with all kinds of puppets as we move like the bugs do and sing some new and familiar songs.

Butterfly Cycle (to the tune of Up on the Housetop)

First comes the butterfly and lays some eggs,

Out comes a catterpillar with many legs.

Oh, see that catterpillar spin and spin.

A little chrysalis to sleep in.

Oh, oh, oh, wait and see.

Oh, oh, oh, wait and see.

Out of the chrysalis, my oh my,

Comes a beautiful butterfly!
