The Circle of Life - From Catepillars to Butterflies

One week ago, the local Kidspace Museum hosted a celebration of bugs...ladybugs, ants, spiders, oh my! They also talked about life cycles and handed out small caterpillars to everyone who wanted one. Over the past week our Caterpillar has begun to spun it's cocoon. So, we moved it out of the small container it was in and into a large shoebox with air holes and a cover. We are not sure how long before it becomes a butterfly, but we're on butterfly watch 2010. We'll upload photos of the cocoon as soon as I find the camera my three year old hid somewhere in the house.
