Getting Buggy




My daughter received a Bugville Live Butterfly Treehouse as a gift at her birthday party. It is listed under $16 at Amazon. You are required to send in $6 for five painted lady caterpillars and their food. The directions seem pretty simple, and three weeks later you are releasing the painted butterflies in your yard!
We just ordered the caterpillars and we can't wait to start "growing" them. The manufacturer Insect Lore also has a website. Here they provide all kinds of buggy information and games. Looks like they also make products for raising ants, lady bugs and other buggy collections.
We are hoping for success in our butterfly enterprise!

I think you better start thinking about names for the lovely ladies! I loved doing that - although, I had to catch my own caterpillars. Kids these days have it so much easier.
