Gettin' Buggy

It's that time of the year...caterpillars galore. The boys find them endlessly amusing and can sit for hours and play with them. Luckily they are pretty gentle and don't smush them....much.

Do you know what kind of butterflies or moths they become?

When I was a little girl I scooped up about a hundred of them into a large canning jar and took them to school. Someone left the jar open and most of them escaped in the library. What a mess! lol!

Very cool! One year we gathered some fuzzy guys, placed them in jars with twigs, leaves, etc...watched them spin their cocoons and waited for them to emerge as butterflies. It was a very cool process to watch.
