You know how our kids are often excited to leave home and go out on their own? Well, that is what thought came to my mind as it was time for us to let our butterflies out into the big world.
We have been raising butterflies from a kit that came with a coupon to receive caterpillars by mail, a butterfly enclosure and instructions. Each step has been very interesting and informative, not only for our kids, but for me as well. I have posted about each phase and you can read about the caterpillar stage, the chrysalis stage and the emerging from the chrysalis.
It was now time for them to go and explore the world for themselves. The kids were excited to help let them out of their enclosure which except for the cups they were raised in caterpillars, it is the only home they have known.
