More Butterflies

This week we painted butterflies for our life cycle books/bulletin board display.

The final product

Then we went to the park to set them free.  Unfortunately we live in the coldest part of the world, I think, so I'm pretty sure they died.  {don't tell the kids}  Apparently they only live for about 2 weeks, so they didn't really have a chance.  :(  But it was still fun, and the kids loved it!  We walked to the park and had our earth day lunch.  The kids bring a lunch that is only reusable/recyclable lunches.  We recycle EVERYTHING and leave no garbage.  It's a lot of fun and my favorite earth day activity! 

 We didn't stay long.  It was WAY too cold.

Three of our beautiful butterflies.  I wish I would have taken a picture with their wings open, but I'll take what I can get.  :)  We have a few more activities this week, and then we'll be finished.
