Day one was amazing! They are eating like pigs. Do caterpillars eat like pigs? As you might have guessed, Fa is beside herself with joy.
They start out small and just get juicier and juicier as the seconds pass.
Some of you may remember us doing this last year. I can't link back. It's on a blog that I have locked.
We're doing it again this year, and I must say, with Fa a year older it just gets better and better. She is having a blast. Plus they are doing this in her pre-school class too...so she's getting it in two places.
She already has her magnifying glass sitting next to the container ready to go. She checks on them regularly and is amazed by how quickly they change.
This is where I purchased them. You can buy a wide range of projects like ladybugs, frogs and even these. I had those as a class pet when I actually had a classroom. I'm thinking of getting one for here too.
The site comes with plenty of research information and activities to enhance the observations...We just have fun and watch. She's still too little to keep a journal and track their changes on paper. So for now..we'll just keep watching.
Hope you come along for the ride!
