From Caterpillar to Butterfly

The girls found a caterpillar the other day and brought in to show me. My first thought was grab the bug house and help them find it some food. Within a couple of days it had formed it cocoon. The girls checked it every day several times a day.
Then one day we looked in the morning and it was not open, but by that evening he had emerged. We had a beautiful Monarch butterfly. The kids got to let him loose and they were sad to see him go but knew it was in his best interest.

  1. How fun! We have a bug house (my hubby's when he was a kid) but haven't done anything with it yet. Thanks for reminding me to dig it out! Maybe we'll try this, too!
