They became butterflies! We did not kill them! Yahoo! :)
My kids were so excited to wake up today to 3 live butterflies and still 2 cocoons...2 more to see become butterflies (we hope they did not die). They are so pretty with black, orange and yellow on their wings, and they are able to watch them close up :) What an amazing gift for them to see life change from caterpillar to butterfly...it is a great analogy to life on earth to eternal life.
Someday we will become something much much more beautiful!
I highly recommend getting this-soooooo worth the money. (and soooooo easy to take care of!)
