We waited until it was sunny on Friday before taking the butterfly habitat out to the garden. The children decided that the best place to release the butterflies was beside the beautiful pallet garden that Mrs MacPhail and the Gardening Club have been busy creating because it contains so many lovely flowers. We opened the habitat and watched and waited to see what happened. The first butterfly flew out very quickly and fluttered away towards the field. The other four butterflies took quite a bit longer to leave the habitat and two of them stayed at the pallet garden for a few minutes which was lovely because we all got to see them really clearly. Eventually they all flew away. We are sad to see them go but so happy that they all emerged safely from their chrysalides and were able to fly away to enjoy exploring the flowers and trees around our school πŸ¦‹πŸ˜ƒ
