Earlier this summer I bought a butterfly habitat for the boys. Y’all. I kind of think I bought this for myself because it was the coolest thing! You got a coupon to mail in and have live caterpillars sent to your house. Then, we got to watch the entire metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly.
Education at it’s finest. Not sure why we pay for preschool.
It took about 10-14 days for all 5 caterpillars to complete the process but Jake and Drew were so excited to see the butterflies! They enjoyed giving them fresh fruit and sugar water to eat…I’m not sure how we didn’t manage to kill them because they loaded that thing down with fruit.
I know every bird in the mountains,
and the insects in the fields are mine.
