Our Butterfly Garden Continued...

We have butterflies!!  The girls were so excited to see our chrysalides turn into butterflies!


 After the first chrysalides turned into a butterfly it took a couple of days for the rest of them to turn into butterflies and all the while the girls enjoyed observing the butterflies in the garden.


We read lots of books on butterflies (I have another post on some of the books coming soon) and the girls looked at various pictures of butterflies as we talked about the similarities and differences of our live butterflies and the ones in the pictures.


 Then it was time to set them free...



 This was such a fun project for the girls and we will most definitely be doing it again next spring!
