My Four Little Paper Dolls has been a popular song of the month, and so by request I am adding another “paper doll” song.

Begin the song with butterflies open, so all four are visible. As each verse is sung, fold a butterfly until you get to the last verse with only one butterfly visible. On the last two lines of the song, open them back up so there are again four butterflies, and have them fly away.


Four Pretty Butterflies
 

Four pretty butterflies playing around
One saw a flower and flew to the ground

Three pretty butterflies playing around
One saw a flower and flew to the ground

Two pretty butterflies playing around
One saw a flower and flew to the ground

One pretty butterfly playing alone
‘til his friends came back…
And they all flew home
