Butterfly Garden #2 with Printables

Here is an update on the progress of our caterpillars:
Growing bigger and bigger!

 We decided to look closely at the caterpillars and draw what we saw.  I even learned that it is NOT called caterpillar poo-poo, but "frass" is the official name!  Audrey drew what she saw in the jar and I labeled it for her.

 The girls LOVE looking at the caterpillars each morning.
 The other morning Audrey ran into her bedroom and came out with her video camera and cell phone!  Too cute:)

I LOVE this photo because it shows that some of the caterpillars have formed their chrysalis and a couple are still busy munching away at the food! 
Now THAT is incredible!! 

You can order your own butterfly garden on amazon here.  They are around $14 right now, which is a great price!

Here are a list of great resources to use with your butterfly garden:
Color the Caterpillar
Dot to Dot for the Very Hungry Caterpillar
Caterpillar Emergent Reader
Pre-Primer Sight Words for the Hungry Caterpillar
Story Props for Reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar
This and That also had some awesome resources!
