We bought the kids 13 caterpillars this past week, plus an aquarium from craigslist, a stand and a bunch of plants that came with the caterpillars. Needless to say the caterpillars have been the topic of discussion for my kids and the point of focus for friends who have visited.
On Monday Lucia sat up the tripod and video camera and caught a couple of them morphing into the chrysalis stage. It was really cool. The kids have the caterpillars in their room. All but one has formed their cocoon. In about two weeks we’ll have a room full of butterflies.
