Is it a bird? A plane? A butterfly? It’s a Mighty Moth! These delicate creatures will no longer be ignored insects when children take note of their natural beauty.
Everyone loves butterflies, but who loves moths? Did you know that there are eight times more moths in the world than butterflies? These insects share many features. They transform from caterpillars and have six legs, two pairs of wings, big eyes, antennae, and a tongue.
So how can you distinguish between moths and butterflies? Moths don’t have knobs on the ends of their antennae. When at rest, a moth's wings remain open, while a butterfly's wings remain together. Some moths are night flyers, so their bodies are thick and hairy to help them stay warm.
Using Crayola® Fine Line Markers, draw your favorite moths. Can you find some that are bright colored? Or that have intricate wing patterns to help them blend into their surroundings?
