We are a music loving household – the CD player always has a children’s music CD in it or the radio is on. Musical instruments can be found around the house and both J and T will burst into spontaneous song at various points during the day.

At the moment we’re into life cycles and with the butterfly’s suddenly making an appearance in the garden it’s the perfect opportunity to start introducing another life cycle on top of the Frog that we are already looking at on the dinning room table. We have read and re-read the Very Hungry Caterpillar and when Collective Bias™ set us the task of creative baking I thought getting creative with some cookies and cakes were perfect bakes to go with a Butterfly theme.
So with a check of our cupboards we wrote a list of what we needed to decorate
