Beginning Our Butterfly Journey

Yesterday our butterfly larvae arrived.
The food had to be mixed.  It looks like cookie dough and smells like oatmeal.
The food was packed into the bottom of these little vials. 
Then using a little brush the larvae were carefully moved into their new homes.
I set up this display, already for the families to explore in the morning.
As they look at the caterpillars they can record what they see.
Especially after getting a close up look.
What do you see?  How many caterpillars do you see?
What colour are the caterpillars?
"A parent is their child's first teacher" and I see it everyday.
