Tiny little caterpillar crawling on the ground.
Crawling up on grass and trees without a single sound.
Hungry little caterpillar chewing on the leaves.
Up on top of bark and branches swaying in the breeze.
Spinning little caterpillar make a chrysalis.
A sleeping bag tucked all around you. Did you Picture this?
Sleepy sleepy caterpillar dreaming of the air.
Sleepy caterpillar – imagine what’s up there?
Wake up little caterpillar. Open up your eyes.
Break out of your chrysalis. You are a Butterfly!
Flying freely butterfly, what can you see from the air?
Do you see clouds and the sun and the children below down there?
To stimulate pretending and other higher process thinking skills. To foster focus, bodily relaxation and the concept of slow.
To teach about how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. Sometimes our lives can do such. Making dreams come true.
