We explored watching our caterpillars turn into beautiful Butterflies. The children took care of our 5 tiny caterpillars showing care and concern and waited patiently for them to crawl to the top of their jar and form their special cocoons. Once they formed their cocoons we transferred them into their new habitat and watched them turn into special' Painted Lady Butterflies ' . After a few days we took them into the garden and set them free. Some Butterflies sat on our hands and some Butterflies flew off into the sky. We enjoyed watching our tiny caterpillars turn into beautiful butterflies.
