For Christmas I got Q some caterpillars to grow into butterflies. Q was super bummed that she couldn't get them right away, but when the weather warmed up she reminded me to order them and was so excited to see them grow. What a cool thing! For the first two days the 5 caterpillars are in a jar of food, and you watch them eat, and wait for them to turn into chrysalis, then you transfer them into the net and watch them turn into butterflies after a few days. then after a couple more days you let them go. Q loved it!! Q was especially happy when one butterfly chose to hang around a little bit, and Q could touch it, and watch it play.
