Our local zoo, Woodland Park Zoo, just opened a Butterfly garden for the summer. It is beautiful to see all the different types of butterflies. Their colors are so vibrant.
The butterflies are at all levels. Beware where you walk cause we will find some of them on the ground which is just the right height of a toddler.
The zoo offers a butterfly guide that my 5 year old daughter loved to match the card to the butterfly.
Did you know?
• Butterflies are insects. • A butterfly’s lifecycle is made up of four parts, egg, larva (caterpillars), pupa (chrysalis) and adult.
We just observed the last stage of the butterfly’s life cycle, adult, at the zoo but check out when we raised caterpillars at home. Click here.
