Easter Butterflies

Once again this Lent, we ordered caterpillars from Insect Lore for our butterfly garden. Last week, four of the caterpillars started making their chrysalis. We have moved the four chrysalides (or pupae) to the butterfly garden and are still waiting for the last (and smallest) caterpillar to make its chrysalis. Four butterflies should emerge a  little before Easter. The last butterfly will hopefully make its appearance on or after Easter.

Video of the 4th caterpillar starting to make its chrysalis:

  1. Beautiful Butterfly lessons. I am definitely going to be asking you alot of questions this summer. lol!
    I have been a fan for a while. But this is a unit study for my homeschool that I want to approach this summer in South Florida. Thank you for sharing! =) God bless !

  2. Jackie, you are welcome.

    I forgot to mention that some of my children have been using Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day which added to their study of butterflies this year. I am hoping that one of my children, or I, will be able to capture a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis.

    May God bless you!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I hope that you have a wonderful day! God bless you!
