Over at Science Sparks they have been having fun based on the theme of The Hungry Caterpillar.
We visited Bristol Zoo this week and the butterfly house prompted lots of questions from my 3 year old.
But how do the caterpillars turn into butterflies?
We were able to see caterpillars, cocoons and butterflies and touch the empty cases. I promised her that when the spring comes we can rear our own butterflies using a kit we have from Insectlore. We have done this successfully in the past before releasing the butterflies into our garden.
We have a song about the lifecycle of a butterfly that we like to sing – it’s great fun for butterfly obsessed kids.
