Can I tell you a little story about butterflies? It isn’t a happy one. Nonetheless, if your family love butterflies like my daughter and I love them, then you will enjoy this FREE printable My Butterfly Book.
Well, one day my daughter, son, and I went for a walk. The weather was lovely and spring was in the air. We live by this long dirt road. As we were walking back home these beautiful butterflies started flying by us. They were black and white, purple and just breathtaking.
They were so pretty that my daughter and I stopped in our tracks. I stopped and said, “look!” I gasped… the next thing you know my son grabbed the butterfly and stomped on it. I swear my daughter and I almost cried.
I asked him what in the world he was doing! He said he didn’t know. My son absolutely shocked me and when he realized what he had done and how bad it was, he cried and cried. Poor thing. I think he chucked up killing the butterfly, to how he would stomp on an ant or something.
We explained to him how it wasn’t right. We did a complete unit study around butterflies and it’s safe to say my son understands the beauty of butterflies now.
I think the moral of the story is, boys can learn the beauty of nature too. In fact, it would greatly benefit them in order to help them appreciate God’s creation – and to keep butterflies alive by little rough boys everywhere.
