We started out with the arrival of two cups of caterpillars. They were tiny when they arrived, but then they ate and ate and ATE!!!! Then they were huge!!!
As you can see, my kids loved to watch them.
They could stare at them all day (and so could I!)
When they started forming their chrysalises we were in awe!
Each day, we waited...and waited...until finally the 1st one emerged! POP! Out came that butterfly! Talk about excitement! And we kept watching for more!
We could see their wings through the chrysalis and that;s when we knew when it was close for each one. Here is a butterfly that is letting it's wings dry. Beautiful!
While we watched our butterflies, we made a life cycle wheel, kept track in our observation book, and learned many new butterfly facts!
