In Mexico, the Day of the Dead often lines up with a rather miraculous natural event, the Monarch butterfly migration. The sky fills with these deep-colored butterflies, adding hues of orange and black to every surface. Here's the thing, this little insect has been through a lot to get to its wintering spot. Unlike other migrating animals, the Monarch goes from South to North over the course of many generations, stopping on the way north to lay eggs and let the newly hatched caterpillars take the next course alone. How do these butterflies find their way to places they've never been before? And how do they know when to leave and where to stop? The mystery of the Monarch butterfly is just another reason that this animal is beautiful!
This butterfly finger puppet is wonderful for Day of the Dead events as well as a way to accessorize any nature-connected costume. It can also be used in schools to talk about the life cycle of a butterfly and the importance of milkweed. Slip this puppet over any finger and watch the translucent orange and black wings move as you let the Monarch soar through the air. With a mysterious background and a rich, golden color, it's no wonder why this little insect is king of the butterflies!
