Back in the winter Larry found three praying mantis cocoons. We left them outside. A couple of weeks ago we brought one in, put it in a jar and made tiny holes in the top for air.
Guess what? It hatched the other day!
How cool are those little bitty praying mantis?
We spent some time observing them! Nothing like hands on learning and observation!
It was really fun examining them with a magnifying glass!
Kaden wanted Daddy to see them so we kept them until he came home from work!
Time to let them go. We decided the lilac bush looked like a nice safe spot to free them.
Leaving the nest….errr… cocoon!
So what nature have your brought in to observe lately?
