Butterfly Sandwiches

 For Blue Monday

We were visiting the Lavender Farm near us, and I just happened to see this pretty butterfly land on the pink and yellow Lantana plant. With lovely lavender plants all about this gorgeous property, I came across this beautiful swimming pool. Looks like something out of a magazine!

This is a great resource I recommend, especially since I love to garden. Here's a review:

"This deck is just bursting with ideas for parents and teacher to help children learn about the world that is growing around us. There are inside activities for a rainy day and inspiring, fun ideas to help our children enter the garden and learn! Seriously, an incredible tool for any family or classroom!"

For Book Sharing Monday:

Fly, Monarch! Fly!

Did you know that "butterflies can see more colors than any other creature on Earth?"
Here is a delightful recipe inside the book called, Butterfly Sandwiches.

Make a sandwich with the filling you like.
Ask an adult to cut your sandwich in halves, then quarters, then eighths.
On a plate, arrange two of the sandwich triangles like wings.
Add a carrot stick to the center for the body, half a cherry tomato or grape tomato for the head, and two thin celery sticks for the antennae.

So cute!

  1. Looks like a lot of work to make those sandwiches--and they'd be gone in one bite! (Well, maybe two!)
