As with any tours / workshops, the most 'popular' part is always the interactive session. For the kiddos that afternoon, it was more of a HAIRY session. LOL Most of the kiddos had a great time being up close and personal with the caterpillars while some prefer admiring from a 'safer' distance. As Dumpling is not new to caterpillars (since we have reared them twice), she was ok with handling them.
Despite the drizzle, the high spirits were not dampened as the kids donned on their raincoats for a walk in the lodge.
The lodge is a 'netted' dome where butterflies roam freely and the children can observe them in a natural setting. This is definitely not for those who have a phobia of flying insects though...
The excitement was not over even after the tour! What awaited the children were...
Even Mama Sue here could not resist 'holding' and interacting with one!
The kiddos also had a chance to bring home a caterpillar kit (at $5 with 2 caterpillars inside and leaves provided for) to observe the metamorphosis process.
