Butterfly Habitat Questions and great ways to use them:

  • Q: What do butterflies eat?
  • A: Show your child how butterflies land on a flower and then use their tongue like a straw to drink up some sweet nectar.
  • Q: Where do butterflies sleep?
  • A: Butterflies huddle up almost anywhere to sleep! Have your child hide your butterfly for the night in the sensory bin.
  • Q: How do butterflies get around?
  • A: They use their beautiful wings to fly! Have your child pretend that their butterfly is flying around the sensory bin.
  • Q: How do butterflies help the flowers?
  • A: They pollinate flowers. While they are drinking the nectar, pollen sticks to butterflies legs and feet. Show the child how this might happen by stringing the mini yellow pony beads onto a leg of the butterfly. Then show how the butterfly flies to the next flower, where some of the pollen falls off and stays on that flower. That is how pollination works!
  • Q: How many legs do butterflies have?
  • A: 6! Have your child count the legs and find out.
  • Q: How many body parts do butterflies have?
  • A: 3! Head, thorax, abdomen – let your child count and find them.
  • Q: What other body parts do butterflies have?
  • A: Eyes, antenna, wings. But before telling the child, let them examine the butterfly to find out for themselves.
