While we were gone...

caterpillar,nature,scienceOur caterpillar made a chrysalis.

We left our caterpillar with Daddy while we went camping with Aunt J. He noticed that the caterpillar stopped eating and then was hanging from the bottom of the cover to the peanut butter jar butterfly habitat. By the time we got home, the butterfly was in a chrysalis. Three days from the time the kids brought it home. We would have liked a few more days to watch, but we are still looking forward to the next stage!

There isn't much to watch right now, but the chrysalis is quite pretty!

Oh fun! See if you can save the chrysalis after it emerges. Monarchs have the best chrysalis!

Peace and laughter!
