recently a parent from bry class came up with a contact to purchase caterpillar or pupa for the kids to learn about the lifecycle of butterfly.

you may or may not know, i am terrified of caterpillar and the likes of it. the tot of having one crawling about in a plastic container is enough to send me running far far far away. anyway, i spoke to the seller to find out more about the care of it and also to express my fear. seller inform me that i would have to change the leaves daily until it enters into the pupa stage and given my fear, it would be better for me to purchase the pupa stage. also extreme care must be taken not to shake the container unnecessary or else the caterpillar or pupa will die.

armed with these information, i decided to order 2 pupas for the boys and to self collect from seller. as there was a mass order from bry class, the seller will be sending them to school for the kids to bring home. as bry is rather rough and goes to after school care, i tot it will be best that i collect them.

anyway, i brought the boys along to collect the pupas and one of them is rather big while the other is tiny (see second pic). there will be no cleaning involved in pupa stage and hopefully we will see them change into butterflies this weekend.
