We have raised butterflies the last few years and it has been so much fun! We reuse our net home every year and then just reorder butterflies. You may need to check your region for the best time to raise them, but I strongly recommend this project with kids.
With everyone being stuck inside due to the coronavirus, a family gift may be a better idea. Here are a few of our favorites activities to do with the family.
We actually have several of these marble runs and we LOVE them. It is a great activity to pull out on long days at home and something the entire family may enjoy. This set is a high quality set and can be used for years.
I know, you may be thinking, wow, that’s a big Easter basket gift. But, perhaps your family has more money in your budget with the break from extra curricular activities.
