Share Holiday Joy on the Wings of Butterflies
‘Twas the night before chrysalis and all through the cage, not a monarch was stirring, in any butter-stage!
Each day a new butterfly hatches feels like Christmas morning. Have you ever experienced the joy of raising magnificent monarchs? It’s an awe-inspiring experience for kids of all ages…
All the monarchs were hung on the ceiling with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there…
Monarch butterflies must have room to hang down for at least two hours after hatching. This allows their wings to expand, and then dry.
But I heard him flapping as he flew out of sight, Happy Chrysalis to all, and to all a good night!
While fully dried butterfly wings aren’t strong enough to carry, say, a Christmas ball ornament…they’ll help to elude predators, so they can find a great butter-love to start a new generation of magnificent monarchs.
