Part of Elijah's science course this year was to take care of caterpillars and see them through the cocoon stage to the butterfly stage. But those darn kits are so expensive! Well, we were blessed to have an infestation of tomato plant eating caterpillars and we kept one and he did make a cocoon and he did break free from it today! We have a moth ladies!
This is the little caterpillars that caused us such grief!
This is the moth on the green plastic plant and the cocoon is in the bottom of the picture.
The kids had so much fun wondering about what it would be. We set him free today and now he can populate the world with more monsters to eat the tomato plants!
"I am a midwife. It is not just what I do, it is what I am, and I grow in it."
Oh wow.. lol..that's pretty cool. And that was a really great way to save money! I probably would have never thought to go look for a free one outside. Was this a First grade project? I'm sorry I couldnt remember what grades your kiddos are in.
