Ideal to perform alongside a minibeast topic, this adorable little musical is about a caterpillar who wishes she could be a butterfly.  She tries fluttering her legs, but that just makes the animals laugh. ‘You’ll never be a butterfly,’ they say. ‘You’ve got no wings!’  Trying to be kind, they suggest that perhaps she’s a ‘flutterpillar’, although of course there is no such thing.

Wanting a better view of the butterflies, Flutterpillar climbs up into a bush. As she hides among the leaves to keep safe, something magical happens!  Her caterpillar skin starts to shed and a chrysalis begins to form.  Safe within her chrysalis, Flutterpillar has a good rest. When it’s time for her to wake up, she has turned into a butterfly!  Her dream has come true.
