BUTTERFLY & CATERPILLAR SONGS, RHYMES & FINGERPLAYS


The Fuzzy Caterpillar 
(Tune: Eensy Weensy Spider)
(Author Unknown)
The little fuzzy caterpillar,
Curled up on a leaf;
Spun her little chrysalis,
and then fell fast asleep.
While she was sleeping,
She dreamed that she could fly;
And later when she woke up,
she was a butterfly.



Sleepy Caterpillars 
(Author Unknown)
"Let's go to sleep," the caterpillars said, (Wiggle five fingers.) 
As they tucked themselves into their cocoon beds. 
(Make a fist.)
They will awaken by and by,
And each one will be a lovely butterfly. 
(Open hand one finger at a time.)


I'm a Little Caterpillar 
(Tune: I'm a Little Teapot)
by Erin Lassiter and Jolanda Garcia

I'm a little caterpillar,
Watch me crawl,
Even though I eat a lot,
I never grow tall.
I build a chrysalis way up high
When I come out
I will be a butterfly!



Two Little Butterflies 
by Jolanda Garcia

Two little butterflies, flying left and right (Flap hands, moving them to the left and to the right.) 
Two little butterflies are quite a sight.

Two little butterflies flying up to the sun (Flap hands while stretching up.) 
Two little butterflies flying down. 
(Flap hands children while bending down.)
Two little butterflies are flying to the back (Flap hands behind back.)
Two little butterflies are coming back.
 (Flap hands to the front.)
Two little butterflies are flying all around (Flap hands any movement.)
Two little butterflies are sitting on the ground. 
(Sit down with hands on legs.)


Flap, Flap, Flap your Wings 
(Tune: Row, Row, Row your Boat)
by Erin Lassiter

Flap, flap, flap your wings,
gently through the sky,
merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
oh, to be a butterfly.



Pretty Butterfly 
(Tune: Up on the Housetop) 
(Author Unknown)
First comes a butterfly that lays an egg,
Out comes the caterpillar with many legs.
Oh, see the caterpillar spin and spin,
A little chrysalis to snuggle up in.

Oh, oh, oh, look and see
Oh, oh, oh, look and see
Out of the chrysalis my, oh, my,
Out comes a pretty butterfly.
