Each year my mom gives the kids a butterfly garden. We send away for the caterpillars and watch them crawl around, and then eventually turn into cocoons. We place them inside the butterfly garden and then hopefully get to catch one of them emerging from the cocoon as a beautiful butterfly!
The kids love watching the evolution from caterpillar to butterfly. One early morning it was time to let our beautiful butterflies go.
They each got to hold one and then release them into the sky.
Such a fun project! Bye-bye butterflies!
