Raising Butterflies Day 8


I know that I said you would hear more when our chrysalis hatche butterflies, but I totally forgot to show you the new habitat for our butterflies when they hatch!

Now that all of our caterpillars have finalized their chrysalis state, we decided to move them into their netted habitat that we received with our caterpillar kit.


Here was what was left over in the jar they were living in the past 7 days

Ewwww, looks pretty yucky! Remaining body parts from when they shed a little of their skin when they grew into a larger size, Poo, and the remaining food they were balling up. I guess they were trying to save? They sure were extremely busy in those 7 days eating, building webs, and sleeping!

Here will be their new habitat until we release our newly transformed butterflies,insha Allah.

Can you see both sets of our Chrysalis’ hanging? I love to see my kids just thrive on the lessons we are learning!

 Here are our chrysalis attached on the inside of the net, awaiting their transformation!


See you all in a few days with newly hatched butterflies insha Allah!
