Painted Lady Butterflies

The children have observed the miraculous metamorphosis of butterflies up close as they cared for live caterpillars. They watched the tiny caterpillars quickly change into huge caterpillars, then change into chrysalises and finally emerge as beautiful adult Painted Lady butterflies.

After two days of the butterflies emerging from their chrysalises the children experienced the joy and wonder of setting the butterflies free to begin the incredible life cycle all over again in the great outdoors.
