Butterfly Release

Butterfly ReleaseWe celebrated the butterflies’ freedom on the same day as Mexico’s Cinco de Mayo!! Kindergarten enjoyed seeing caterpillars turn to butterflies!! John Michael brought in the butterfly kit to class! The kit came with caterpillars and their food. After a week they formed their cocoon and were placed in a special butterfly cage. Six days later they popped out as a butterfly. We fed them sugar water and fruit for several days and then it was time for their release!! These butterflies are called “Painted Ladies”. We had five butterflies to release on May 5th! 5/5/16. We celebrated their freedom today too!!
