I can't wait to do it over and over again each year.

Watching the caterpillars transition to butterflies was an amazing experience for the preschoolers in my class. They were excited to watch each stage and even more to be able to release them. Before flying away they stayed near the kids, even landing on some of them.

This shipment I just received today. I am very excited about doing this activity again.

I just received my caterpillars. I have ordered them before from you as well as my mother has had them before also. We are both teachers and use them in our classrooms.
