Have you ever adopted a caterpillar Pasadena?
If you haven’t, Day 309 of 365 Things To Do in Pasadena is going to give you your chance!
This weekend you will be able to head on our over the one of favorite places, Kidspace Children’s Museum, and purchase a caterpillar to raise.
Now of course adopting a sweet, adorable caterpillar comes with a tiny bit of the “parting is such sweet sorrow” feeling. 🙂
You get to take your little critter home, care for it, and watch it transform into a blossoming butterfly right before your very eyes!
Doesn’t this sound like a great way to welcome Spring into your home?
Once your butterfly has arrived, you are invited back to Kidspace, on April 16th or 17th to release your butterfly into their natural habitat so they can begin pollinating plants and flowers.
Isn’t it just amazing? The miracle that is life…
Kidspace Museum Members have the opportunity to take part in the Annual Adoption Kick Off taking place today March 18th from 5:00 – 8:00 pm.
Members get to be one of the first to purchase their very own caterpillar at the Busy Bee Learning Store! During this special member’s night, the caterpillars are only $4 each.
Dress up with butterfly wings and antennae, have your face painted with bright beautiful colors and then perform the pupa freeze dance.
Saturday March 19th 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.
The public is invited to visit the Busy Bee Learning Store to purchase live caterpillars for this Kidspace Spring time tradition. You and your family will enjoy raising your caterpillars from pupa to chrysalis, and finally into beautiful butterflies by following the directions included with your adoption kit. Caterpillar adoptions are available at the Busy Bee Learning Store from March 19th through April 17th, or while supplies last. Visit the Nature Exchange for a sneak peak at caterpillars on display and the museums upcoming caterpillar workshops.
