One day we saw the upper part of the chrysalis become very light in color. We said good morning to the children and looked at the chrysalids again... there was a butterfly! This was very exciting for the children to see!
We prepared some sugar solution. 3 teaspoons of sugar mixed with one cup of water. We added this to some cut flowers so the butterfly could have something to eat.
That afternoon another butterfly emerged.
We made sure to feed the butterflies!
The following day we decided to let the two be free in their "natural habitat." Some of the children were sad but others thought it was a good idea for them to be in their own home!
The children waved goodbye!!
Now we notice all of the butterflies when we go outside!
Dr. Montessori would be proud!
