Every year our family gets a cup of live caterpillars to raise until they turn into butterflies. The kids love watching the tiny caterpillars grow and turn into a chrysalis, and then eventually a butterfly! It’s so fun for all of us. For me, it’s a sign that spring is finally, really, truly here. We usually get them with enough time to release them on Earth Day. However, due to a move this month we only just got our caterpillars this week! Yikes! So I set out to find other ways to have fun with the kids this Earth Day and compiled a list to share with you!

Simply Spring – The Butterfly Exhibit

March 18 – May 21, 2017

We’ll definitely be checking out this exhibit at Nicholas Conservatory this weekend! They have various types of butterflies that you can feed with a special sugar water! The kids will absolutely LOVE it and they can even see the whole butterfly life cycle in action as you view butterflies emerging from their chrysalis in the emergence area.
