The Caterpillar Project
Every year we complete ‘The Caterpillar Project’ in our nurseries. We observe the changes that take place from tiny baby caterpillars, to big fluffy caterpillars, to chrysalides and ultimately their transformation into beautiful butterflies! The whole process takes between 4-6 weeks.
The project is fun and exciting for young and old alike!
I hope everyone enjoys watching these little ones blossom and transform
