Our Caterpillar Journey - Part five

24th June - Our caterpillars have now hardened into chrysalides. We waited three days before carefully transferring our fully formed chrysalides into their hatching habitat. We will wait patiently for the magical moment they emerge as beautiful butterflies, πŸ¦‹

We made playdough cakes using flour and soap. We measured out the ingredients ourselves using the scoops. We then mixed it together to make cakes. They smelt delicious. 🍰
