Yesterday we released our butterflies and off they flew. We all had a close look at their beautiful wings before they finally flew away as we waved goodbye! We talked about where they might go… maybe to find flowers in our gardens… maybe to lay their eggs so they can have some caterpillar babies or maybe they are off on holiday! Keep your eyes open for our butterflies next time you are out and about!
Today our butterflies have started emerging – one this morning, one this afternoon and the other 2 look ready to hatch anytime now! We have been observing them carefully today as their wings dry out before we release them later this week. “I love their colours on their wings!” “Their wings are so pretty!”
Lotta, our new therapy dog, came to visit today! She enjoyed being stroked and having her tummy tickled by the children! We will make sure she comes to say hello to all the Froglet children across the next few weeks 🙂
Our amazing caterpillars have grown so much over half term and have now turned into chrysalises ready to become butterflies in a few days time! I wonder what colour their wings will be? Can you see the beautiful gold streak on them?
