Last week for an activity I gave the girls buckets and shovels and told them to look for bugs…mostly to give me some free time, but they loved it. They found mostly beetles, but loved finding any kind of bug. With Klai’s excitement she wanted to show her class, and her teacher was nice enough to let her bring her bugs to show the class. A day or so after showing her class, her teacher got some caterpillars for the class to watch and helped us retrieve some also. The girls loved looking at the caterpillar. We had plenty of crawling space for the caterpillar and leaves to eat, but after a few days it died. So yesterday we went a retrieved another caterpillar and this time put a net over the bowl to make sure that nothing would eat our friend. We named this friend Rani the caterpillar and we can’t wait for it to turn into a caterpillar.
Today Klai asked, “Has it made a coconut yet?”
“You mean a cacoon? No not yet, but soon it will.”
I thought that was too cute.
