Everything Butterfly: Introduction


The life cycle of the butterfly is truly amazing.  It points to our creator who so intelligently, beautifully, and magnificently created butterflies for His glory and our knowing and enjoyment of Him!

For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky.  Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. 
Romans 1: 20 (NLT)

Join me as I share with you our enjoyment of God's creation, EVERYTHING BUTTERFLY!  We have been very busy watching the life-cycle unfold, visiting our local butterfly garden, making our own backyard butterfly garden, creating butterfly arts & crafts, and even eating fun butterfly themed treats.

Today I will share with you a simple stamping activity that will help children recognize that God created butterflies for His glory!  This lesson was taken from "Jesus, What a Savior!" curriculum created by Children Desiring God.  If you would like to read the review of this particular curriculum click HERE.


The lesson is titled, "God Created the World to show How Special He Is."  I have used this lesson MANY times while studying or enjoying nature with my children.  The key verse is Psalm 19:1 "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky proclaims his handiwork."  The three main ideas are...
  1. God is overflowing in His greatness and worth.
  2. Creation is a display of how special God is.
  3. In creation, we can see, feel, touch, hear, and smell how special God is. (Click HERE for more ideas of how to extend this idea). 
After discussing the main ideas and reading the correlated bible verses we stamped butterflies to the worksheet above.  The completed worksheet would then communicate to the child, "God Created BUTTERFLIES (stamped picture) to Show How Special He Is."  After, I displayed the completed worksheet for us to be reminded of this great truth!


If you are looking for another way to use stamps try this...


Simply use a variety of colored markers to color directly onto the rubber stamp then press stamp directly onto the paper for a beautiful colorful design!

Please join me as I share with you and your family more "EVERYTHING BUTTERFLY"  activities and ideas!
