Butterfly Garden

I ordered a Butterfly Garden from Insect Lore for Kendall and Caden to learn about the life cycle of the Butterfly. Saturday was the day to release them into the "wild". We started out with 10 larvae and 9 of them survived and grew into beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies! It was so amazing to watch how quickly they grew into caterpillars & then made the cocoons. It was maybe a total of 20 days that it took for them to become Butterflies. Here are a few photos of the kids releasing them. It happened so quickly that I had to act fast!
