Waiting for Butterflies

It's that time of year, one of my favourites, when new life appears in our room.
We've already experienced tadpoles to frogs,
which happened a lot quicker this year then in the past.
And now our butterfly larvae are in transit.
One thing that has always bothered me about our learning of
the butterfly life cycle is that we never
see the egg form.
So this year I made pretend eggs by gluing tiny pom poms
on to fake leaves.
As we waited I encouraged the children to imagine
what colour the caterpillars might be.
I wish they were all these wonderful colours.
