This has been such a fun activity! I told the kids that if they squeezed a cup full of orange juice they could use these straw glasses to drink it with. Margaret called them Harry Potter glasses. It was such a long straw that is took a lot of suction to drink up the juice, hence the puckering faces. But all of them had a good time doing it and I enjoyed watching.
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
