We have been learning all about the life cycle of a butterfly so we took a delivery of five baby caterpillars that we could take care of and watch as they grew and changed.

We watched the caterpillars eat and grow until each one went into a chrysalis to transform.

We waited for two weeks and one morning we came in to find we had a butterfly in our net fluttering about!

We kept our butterflies for a few days to look at and fed them on chopped apple, but we knew we had to let them fly away. We took the net into our outside area and opened the top to let our butterflies out.
