3 of our chrysalids hatched today! One poor butterfly did not develop right and was all twisted…that one did not make it. But the other 2 are flying around the net. One more chrysalis to go…that one did not form his chrysalis until a few days after the first, so he will likely come out in a few days. It was great to watch! I hope to get photos soon!
I did this with my kids yesterday for our science day. I was excited…just mixing a few ingredients made a temporary lava lamp like reaction in a glass. Pretty fun stuff for them! And I enjoyed it as well.
Also, we transferred are chrysalides (yes that is the plural of chrysalis) from there little cup to the butterfly net. Hopefully in 5 days or so we will have some butterflies!
