Bug Club – Butterfly Day



IMG_1880_edited-1





This weekend, it was Butterfly Day at Bug Club. We had a great time and thankfully it was a bit cooler than it has been.


LittleBit was able to hold several different types of butterflies, see eggs under a microscope, observe caterpillars, and chrysalis. There was a butterfly hunt and tour. Everything was divided into small stations with people to help the kids and answer questions.
