With the holidays on the horizon I’m on the hunt for some projects for Milla and Monty. With sunflowers proving to be a bit of a garden disaster I’ve been looking for inspiration. When I saw this post on Scented Sweetpeas I was instantly in love.
You can buy a kit with everything you need to ‘grow’ your own butterflies. You will see them grow from caterpillars, to chrysalis, watching them hatch and releasing them into your garden. It comes with a pop up habitat, live caterpillars, caterpillar container and food all for Â£16.67 from Insect Lore.
Having watched frog spawn hatch, grow and metamorphose into frogs at playgroup I know Milla would love this. The potential for related activities is huge from The Very Hungry Caterpillar to art to science you can build activities around this or just enjoy the process.
