Butterfly Garden

A few weeks ago we bought Landry a butterfly habitat kit. It came with a mesh butterfly house & we sent away for the caterpillars. A few days later we received a plastic cup in the mail containing 5 caterpillars. We watched them grow & then become chrysalids hanging from the top of the cup. Once they were in their cocoons, we transferred them into the mesh butterfly house & were able to watch them change into butterflies after about a week. Landry loved it!! We kept them in his room for about a week feeding them oranges & then we set them free in our backyard.

Here is a video clip of the freeing of the butterflies!  It’s kind of long, but if you hang with it, there’s a really funny part after about 2 minutes…
