Painted Ladies

This morning was our annual butterfly release shindig.  The past number of years we’ve been watching caterpillars transform into chrysalis and then emerge as butterflies in late May/early June. For more details on the process read this article.

This year we had four of them.  There were lots of giggles about the butterflies licking the kids fingers, funny that they can actually feel that (or so they say.)

It’s a super easy and and interesting project for the kids to enjoy.  You can easily order a kit along with the caterpillars on Amazon.
