A few weeks back the Garden Toddlers found two caterpillars in the garden while picking vegetables.  They brought them into the Cottage classroom and made a home for them.  The teachers and children fed them and watched them daily until over this past weekend the caterpillars formed their chrysalis. During nap time yesterday, one of the chrysalis’ opened up and out popped a beautiful butterfly!  Everyone was so excited and very interested in investigating the butterfly before releasing it in the garden where they had found the caterpillars.  We are still waiting for the other chrysalis to open up!
