  1. Karen these are such lovely photos and it’s true isn’t it how fast they grow as caterpillars! They are pretty grim when they are big black ones ready to change – but so lovely when they come out as butterflies. Love that Freyja was annoyed at everyone but the caterpillars! So funny! Lovely post xxx

      Thank you. They just grow so quickly!! The caterpillars hadn’t asked Freyja to tidy up or eat her tea so she had no reason to be cross with them!

    Gorgeous photos.of them. I think I’d be more excited by N if we had some of these.

    I think these are great sets for kids. We hatched caterpillars last year which was fun; I saw a painted lady in our garden earlier, I wonder whether it was a descendent of last year’s butterflies?!

  4. Awwww such a sweet moment to release them! A lovely nature project too! #countrykids

    What a great activity for you and the kids to do, I bet you all had a fab time watching the grow and turn for caterpillars to butterflies. I can imagine the excitement on the girls faces as they realised one chrysalis had opened and a butterfly had evolved. What a great learning experience for the girls, I’m sure they’ll be telling all their friends about their pet caterpillars. Thanks for linking up with me on Country Kids.

  6. Love this! I am definitely going to do this when T’s a bit older. So cute that Freyja was cross with everyone except the caterpillars!

  7. This is so lovely, and the girls are SO involved bless them. You are such a fun mummy xxx
