Painted Lady Metamorphosis

Our caterpillars morphed into butterflies!

I apologize for my camera work, who knew it was so hard to capture pictures of butterflies on a windy day! Lol! We are definately going to order some more caterpillars it was so fun watching them grow and spin into their chrysillas and then emerge as beautiful butterflies. 

We were so inspired we couldn't stop so here are a couple other butterfly projects we worked on over the last week or so...

 Life cycle of a butterfly with different pasta noodles, we used orzo for the eggs, spiral for the caterpillars, shells for the chrysalis, and bowtie for the butterflies. 

We couldn't make enough of these Rorschach butterflies, just drip some paint and fold in half, easy peasy and beautiful.

I know that I haven't been keeping up with this blog as much as I want/should but we are constantly visiting someone, running errands, or just having too much fun and it's hard to photog with a baby in my arms haha. Speaking of baby here he is getting soooooo big!
Thanks for stopping by. ♥

Windsock and Caterpillars

We have had some weird weather so we had fun playing with Biggs windsock. We also finally received our caterpillars they have already grown so much in the past couple of days and we are waiting patiently for them to spin themselves up and turn into chrysilide. Biggs wakes up every morning and checks on them and gives me the update of how much they are growing. Lol.

 I know you missed this punim!

Catching Up

Wow we have been so busy and I've been neglecting our poor little blog, however we have been visiting lots of family live and in the flesh and that's always better than a blog post so I know you all understand. What I'm going to do is just put a few things that we had done from the last couple weeks.

Here is Biggs making some pizza shapes and decorating them!

Here is lil brother aka Bruce Willis

Can't forget lots of playing with lil Pinkie!

On this particular day we wanted to make some snacks for a movie night and on the back of Biggs peanut butter cereal was a recipe for peanut butter bites. Here is the recipe. I must say they are quite delicious and easy to make. 

Today is a strange blustery day a storm is brewing and Biggs decided he needed to be a Box Troll. So here it is Box Troll Biggs!

Egg paint bombs

I found this project here. I sadly did not come up with this super fun idea but what matters is that it was awesome and we will be doing it all the time. We eat eggs for breakfast almost everyday so there is no shortage of eggshells. I used a butter knife to just crack the top of the eggs rinsed them out and when we had enough I filled them with paint and covered them with a piece of tissue paper. Biggs had an awesome time throwing them and by the time he was done his clothes were covered in paint (it's washable but they were play clothes). I had a pink poster in the garage so that's what we used but you can use canvas, cardboard, or even a sheet! In a couple of the pictures you can see Biggs egg flying mid air, yeah awesome!

 Oh no!!!!! Egg on the loose!
