Butterfly Life Cycle

This was a fun, four-part activity. First the eggs on a leaf (stickers on foam leaf; then making a foam caterpillar of different colors; then twisting a pipe cleaner to make the pupa/cocoon and taping it to a foam twig; then using highlighters to color in in the butterfly. It took exactly 45 minutes, so yeah.

Baby Butterfly!

I bought painted lady caterpillars, to somehow incorporate them into the April=Animals curriculum. They came.

At first they were littles.

Then they ate

and ate

and got big

and bigger,

then cocooned.

I clipped the cocoons to the big mesh butterfly habitat.

Then we waited.

Sometime today, the first butterfly emerged. I feel like a proud papa!
