Butterfly Life Cycle for Kids

The life cycle of a butterfly is one of the most fascinating things in nature. It starts as a tiny egg. Once the egg hatches, the caterpillar that emerges begins to consume leaves at an astonishing rate.

After growing to several times its original size, the caterpillar spins a cocoon and pupates. A few weeks later, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis, its wings damp and wrinkled.

Over the course of a few hours, the insect’s body pumps hemolymph into its wings, allowing them to expand and dry.

And with that, the cycle is complete – another generation of butterflies is ready to take flight.
