Butterfly Resources

 

 

We are right in the middle of our butterfly kit!! Our caterpillars JUST forms their chrysalides this weekend! YAY!!!

 

Butterfly Kit

 

This is what our caterpillars looked like when we got them in the mail on February 28th.

 

Caterpillars

 

This is what they looked like just a day or 2 before they started making their chrysalides.

 

Chrysalides

 

Here are the chrysalides that were made over the weekend!

 

I worried that I jumped the gun on ordering the caterpillars but the kit says as long as it is above 55 degrees when you release them then they will be OK. SHEW!!!

We should have painted lady butterflies in 7 – 10 days!! YAY!!!

I purchased our kit at Toys R Us but you can get the same kit on Amazon. WOW! I should have waited and bought mine there! LOL It’s on sale right now!!!

 

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$$.
