Every Spring, we get our Painted Lady Caterpillars and it's a joy. We worked with 3 part cards, made our own booklets, and watched this all happen right before our eyes! Madeline is forever finding inchworms outside (they are actually moth caterpillars, not worms) and creating cozy habitats with them. One day recently, we counted over 50- just in our backyard. She is convinced that each Painted Lady we see in nature is one of ours, or- at the very least- a relative of ours from years past. Maybe!
