construction paper. Cut a 1" x 4" rectangle in the bottom of the
Tape a triangular cardboard roof to the top of box. Add
decorations as desired. Label each
house with a different rhyme.

cutouts with words ending with its rhyme. To make the center
write the words on the inside of the box. To

around the spaces by gluing on crumpled tissue paper
of the matching
color. Use markers or decorative paper to color the butterfly's
then add large wiggly eyes and pipe cleaner antennae to complete
this colorful creation.
