Have your kids already kept a caterpillar home? My daughter decided to make an experiment one day. She found a caterpillar in our garden and wanted to keep it in her room. She said she wanted to see how it transformed to a beautiful butterfly. Well.. how do you deal with that? I said she could keep it, but it had to stay in her playhouse back in our the garden. I didn't like the idea of a caterpillar sneaking in and visiting our house, grrr... We made a nice box for this caterpillar, a butterfly-to-be, put some cotton and some leaves inside and left it in the playhouse.
That day I was preparing some cherries for a dessert. When I was removing the pits from the cherries for my daughter, she started to place the fruits on her plate and said: "Look, Mummy, this looks like my caterpillar". She was right! So we added some raisins to make the caterpillar legs and a slice of banana for the head. My daughter was delighted:)
Happy caterpillar - cherries and yogurt
