My girls and I recently did a unit study on butterflies. Using this kit we watched our caterpillars go through metamorphosis, becoming chrysalids and finally lovely Painted Lady butterflies. Feeding, watching, and taking care of these precious creatures linked us very closely to them — so close that when we released them, we all shed tears.
My girls wanted their butterflies to stay in our yard. So we did a little research and discovered a few ways to not only keep our butterflies around our house, but also to attract more butterflies in the process. Of course our butterflies probably left as soon as we released them, but we have noticed a lot of butterflies in our yard and the girls believe they are theirs 🙂
