Butterfly Lecture and Egg Hunt

Today our local recreation department had a butterfly egg hunt and lecture on butterflies. We are very lucky our local parks and recreation department has so many good programs that work so well with homeschooling. LittleBit's favorite is Bug Club.

Today he learned about what butterflies eat, where they grow, how they grow etc. They went on a hunt for milkweed, did not find much, it is a little early yet. He learned about what kind of plants you can grow in your own yard to attract butterflies. We have now added parsley and basil to our little vegetable garden. It was a great morning and we will go back in a couple of weeks for more egg hunting and then next month it will be larvae finding and counting.
