from caterpillar to butterfly

starting out as itty bitty caterpillars
the hungry caterpillars grew into big, fat caterpillars... making their way to the top to prepare for their cocoons
the cocoons make a move to their new home
checking things out
a butterfly emerges
fly away butterflies!
friendly little fella
attempting a capture
it's been fun butterfly, now go make some babies

We kicked off our first day of summer by releasing our butterflies. What a fun little adventure this has been. It still blows my mind that these beautiful creatures can undergo such a transformation!

8 tellin' me what I want to hear!:

Oooh, what a NEAT idea! Josiah enjoyed watching his bean seeds grow into plants, so I know he would LOVE this. Did you buy the caterpillars & their first 'home' or did you catch them/create it yourselves?

You are the best Mom, treating your kids to so many learning experiences!! They are soooo blessed to have you! They sure like they are having fun!!!!

How can anybody not believe in God when they see how awesome his creation is?
What a great summer project. I have done butterflies w/ my students, but it never occured to me to do them this summer. I am going to put it on my list.

What a fun experiment for the kids.. I even enjoyed getting to see them in their various stages and couldn't believe how fast they changed... think Mommie was just as amazed as the kids though :O)..

Now can't wait to see what all comes out of that treasure chest you are putting together.. H,E &E are so lucky to have a Mommie who can think of so many fun things to do and create!
