I teach a Sunday School class of 4&5 year olds. Each year I order I send a couple of cups home with parents. Then when our butterflies are ready we release them at class. The kids love this and it's a great way to talk about transformation or this year the Easter story.
- I wish the cost wasn't quite so much for the caterpillars, but it so worth it to see the kids faces when the "magic" happens!
I plan on ordering another cup of caterpillars this year, I did it the last couple years with my granddaughter and a long time ago with my daycare children in my home...they all loved doing that! A great science/nature project to get them thinking!
it is AWESOME did it with my mom so fun loved it really cool
