Three weeks ago, we ordered caterpillar pupa
and a butterfly garden from Insect Lore.
Our babies arrived within the week
with special instructions to leave them be
and watch them eat, quickly grow enormous
and then hang from the lid on their cup
to form their chrysalises.
Much to my surprise, they did just as they were supposed to!
You drew another ADORABLE picture in your journal:
and we transfered them to their netted house
and waited again for the next stage...
able to see them come out.
We did see them first thing in the morning,
fluttering around in their home,
waiting for us to feed them! :)
You drew another photo:
screen room and let them out.
We spent some time gently playing with them
and photographing them.
to complete their life cycle.
Something we will definitely do again.
