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 $$$$.

Dinosaur Resources

Dinosaur graphic from Science Kids

We have a MAJOR dinosaur lover in this house!! Colin has been a complete and total dinosaur fan since he was about 1 1/2! We have studied them over and over and over. We have read just about every dinosaur book out there. We have TONS of toy dinosaurs strewn from end of the house to the other. We’ve put together wooden dino skeletons. You name it and we’ve probably done it. LOL BUT it’s been a little while since we’ve gotten into the nitty gritty of an actual dinosaur unit study and I figure its time has come.

If you’ve ever wondered what you get in a Magic School Bus Kit here’s a picture of the opened dinosaur kit.

You get everything but the book up in the top left corner.

Here are a couple more pictures of Cailey and Colin using their kit.

Gosh, they were SO TINY!!! We did this kit about 3 years ago!!! My goodness!!!

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 $$$.

Let me say that I am NOT affiliated in ANY way with ANY companies. I don’t get a dime for you clicking over to Amazon or Currclick or any other site. I am just trying to put together as many great resources as I can find to give you and me plenty of options. ;)

I’ve actually been asked to a few paid posts but since they were for products that I have never used I refused. I want y’all to be able to trust my opinion on products.
