3 Butterfly Songs

Feb 29, 2020

We’re continuing on with the “Flight” theme this week! This song set would supplement our “Flight” themed Online Music Course (details here) or stand alone, too! Watch Elizabeth and Kathryn with their daughters Charlotte and Imogene having some musical fun with butterfly songs:


5 Little Butterflies

Fuzzy Caterpillar

Butterfly Butterfly


Butterflies are such a fun subject to learn about with your preschool aged child! 5 Little Butterflies is a counting song, using butterfly puppets (we’ve got a handy printable for you on the sidebar). Fuzzy Caterpillar gets your kiddo imagining and acting out the caterpillar → butterfly transformation, and Butterfly Butterfly is a sweet and simple action song. We like to use the ASL sign for “butterfly” when we sing this song.

Our girls loved flying their butterfly puppets around, and pretending to be caterpillars and butterflies, too! We hope you have as much fun as we did!

Here is a great list of “butterfly activities for preschoolers” if you’re looking to extend your learning beyond these three songs.

If you liked the instruction in this video and would like more Clap for Classics! in your life and in your home, please check out our "Flight" themed at-home music course.  We think you'll love it!
