Caterpillar to Butterfly

Over the last few weeks we have been caring for 10 caterpillars. When they arrived in  school they were tiny little caterpillars and just like the Very Hungry Caterpillar they ate and ate until they got bigger and bigger. After eating all of their special food they spun their cocoons and we have been  waiting for the butterflies to emerge.

Today is the day and at last we have some butterflies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At the moment there are only three but we hope the others will emerge later today. The children can't wait to get inside the butterfly tent with them! 

Our butterflies are the painted lady variety and are orange, black and white with brown bodies.
