Everyone in our home has been watching the butterfly tank the last week. No matter how many times we observe the process, it is still fascinating. Even though we’ve talked about the process over and over again, it never hurts to review the vocabulary, stages, and take some time to savor every step of the process.
We released two caterpillars this past week and have two in a chrysalis, waiting their turn. In the meantime, while we wait for a butterfly to emerge, we’re going to have some fun with our monarch butterfly life cycle printables – and I’d love to share them with you too!
